2015 Weingut Schnabel Riesling

71.00

Karl Schnabel is one of the greatest farmers we have met. He and his family are based in Styria, in the far south of Austria, about 10kms north of the border with Slovenia and they farm five extraordinary hectares on the famous Sausal mountain.

Their wines are essential. They're farmed and vinified with an enormous amount of love and precision the terroir is among the remarkable I've visited.

Their 2015 Riesling was macerated on skins during fermentation and so is gently tannic, amber in colourand exceptionally mineral.

The flavours in the mid-palate are very stony and it's very interesting (and delicious) to taste this sort of expression of Riesling.

Following fermentation it was pressed, allowed to develop in barrel for roughly 10 months and then run to bottle very gently

Like the chardonnay, it's perfect served cool, but not cold - 15-16C is great.
