Wine of sparkling colour of dry straw. In the aroma, juicy fruity tones of overripen apricots, exotic mango, papaya interlaced with sweet heavier flower aromas. The wine matured in oak barrels and has absorbed beautiful aromas of vanilla, liquorice while the taste has kept its robust structure, fresh acids with aftertaste reminding of grapefruit or Sicily red orange.
A generally full juicy wine with a long aftertaste and captivating aromatics that is prepared for long maturing.
(Sommelier Tomáš Vyšvader)

And another mystery about the origin. It is assumed to come from the wild nature directly to the royal court. Only the original locality of this Riesling is definite – the Rhine valley. Rheinriesling originated as a seedling of wild grape and it was seeded on the banks of the river by king Ludwig (834 - 876) for the first time. Others think that it is a product of free cross breeding of the varieties Heunisch with a Traminer seedling in the headwater of the river Rhine. We do not know the truth, you may choose the one you like more.
Like we have chosen. We usually make our Rheinriesling in two ways – in stainless tanks and in oak barrels. For the vintage 2016, we have decided to put in wooden barrels. Our advantage was that 2016 was one of the hottest and the “Rhiner” likes it. The grapes reached a sugar content of 22.5 NM while still keeping essential acids, one of crucial factors for a wine. As usual in our winery, we also milled berries of this variety and let them resting in “wellness” together with skin for 20 hours. We pressed it well rested at low pressure. The alcohol fermentation proceeded in stainless tanks but as soon as it finished we transferred the wine to new 500 litre oak barrels. There it was mixed on fine yeast grounds for 6 months and it was gaining its beauty and harmony for next 4 months. After a year spent in the barrel, we have tapped, filtered and bottled the wine.
You should definitely try this Riesling to know how it tastes like when it had the pleasure of a wooden barrel. It certainly won’t disappoint you.
