FRESH & LIVELY
Dry Qualitätswein Riesling
Mouthwatering and juicy, our newest Riesling offers fragrant aromas of crisp green apple and zesty citrus. Bold and brilliant, its notes of bright acidity are balanced with rich flavors of white peach and honeysuckle. This medium-bodied wine is well structured, leading to a long and lasting finish.
Pour a glass of our refreshing Dry Riesling to enjoy on its own or perfectly matched with crisp green salads, flaky white fish, California rolls or creamy pastas.
Schmitt Sohne Family Wines Dry Riesling’s grapes are grown in select vineyards in the Rheinhessen appellation in Germany. The Rheinhessen’s nickname is “Land of 1,000 Hills” for its many rolling hills of vineyards placed along the banks of the Rhine. There is a great variety of fertile soil types including loess, limestone and loam, which impart special characteristics seen in distinctive German Rieslings. The Rheinhessen is also known as one of Germany's warmest growing regions.
Germany’s harvest is typically a month later than other wine regions, allowing for a long ripening season. Our winemakers carefully monitor the grapes on the vine, picking at optimal ripeness. During picking, the grapes are handled very carefully to avoid bruising, letting the natural sweetness shine through. Harvested in the cool early morning, the grapes are brought quickly to the winery, destemmed and placed in stainless steel tanks that help retain our Riesling’s crisp acidity. The wine is kept cool, between 50-65 degrees, during fermentation.
