Riesling [Spatlese], ‘Late Harvest’, Hermann J. Wiemer
This enticing rendition of Riesling is crafted in the traditional German Spätlese style; with moderate natural sweetness counterpoised by a bright, invigorating liveliness. In a yearly gamble against the weather, grapes for Spätlese wines are left to hang for a longer time on the vines, allowing them to develop riper flavor profiles. The later picking also increases must weight resulting in a more full-bodied wine. This wine is crafted 60% from the Josef vineyard, 35% from Magdalena, and 5% from HJW. It finishes with a 5.2% RS and 8.5% ABV.
