About

91

"Mint, elderflower, ripe peach, honeydew melon and orange combine for a lovely nose and a voluminous, richly fruited palate full of inner-mouth perfume. Tangy fresh lime brightness lends animation while huckleberry and orange peel deliver invigorating counterpoint on a lingering finish." September 2016

Product Description:

"Hollerin begins at the place where Kellerberg approaches the valley floor. It is highly influence by the neighbouring mountainside in the upper portion, but the soils are deeper and the gneiss breaks the surface less frequently towards the bottom. Our Riesling is planted in the upper third where the loam is shallower and there is more rock. The Rieslings from Hollerin are generally approachable fairly early and yield abundant mineral notes and quite intense stone fruit aromas." - Winery
