Riesling [Auslese], ‘Josef Vyd’, Hermann J. Wiemer

The Josef Vineyard is home to the longest established Riesling plantings on the Wiemer estate. These mature vines produce wines of intense flavor through lower yields and longer hang times. Josef’s ideal slope, deep soils, and a warming lake effect add further to the site’s potential ripeness. Increased sugar densities from this rich site enable the winery to craft Rieslings in the traditional Auslese style.

Tasting Notes

Tropical acidities and firm mineral structure underpin a giving, stone fruit palate. The weight and spread gained from these late pickings enhance its textural mouthfeel. In turns floral and spicy, the aromatic depth of the Josef Vineyard Riesling will increase significantly over time; be it in a decanter or in a cellar.
