Description

"Light and elegant on the nose - racier than the Rheingau Riesling trocken QbA. Greater delicacy on the palate too. Tastes less than 12.5% alcohol. Super racy. An afternoon wine?! Acidity almost trumps the passion fruit but there is impressive extract. Pure Rheingau build. Some density underneath. Not the aromatic soar of the Mosel. Drink 2013-2017. (JR)" 16.5 out of 20 points, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages

"Eva Fricke grows only Riesling on the steep slopes of Lorch in the Rheingau. Some of the vines are more than 45 years old. The wines show the minerality of the slate and quartzite soils of Lorch. This Riesling is a cuvee from Lorcher vineyards, with bright citrus fruit flavours, and a juicy, mineral finish." -Winery
