Product Description:

"The 2014 Riesling Grand Cru Sommerberg Eckberg (or just Sommerberg E in Europe) comes from a very steep and stony plot that is 400 meters above sea level, so even more extreme than the regular Sommerberg. From 43- and 45-year-old vines, the Eckberg displays a very pure and flinty bouquet of ripe and concentrated fruits, crushed stones and herbal flavors. On the palate this is powerful, rich and concentrated yet also elegant and well-balanced Sommerberg; it has a round and intense, very juicy and seductive fruit and firm tannins. Still way too young, this rich and powerful Riesling will benefit from further bottle age. Great Riesling to be aged for at least ten years."
