"A beautifully balanced, expressive Riesling, featuring lively notes of nectarine, yellow apple and clementine. Velvety in texture, with good minerality and a firm structure keeping all the elements together. Good length. Drink now through 2026. 300 cases imported."
Eva Fricke was born in a small village in Lower Saxony the daughter of two doctors. Her passion for wine originated during a practical training in the vineyards of South Africa. Upon returning to Germany, Eva studied viticulture and oenology in Geisenheim, where she graduated in 2001. During her studies, she worked at several vineyards around the world including Château Cissac in Hâut-Médoc; Schloss Johannisberg in the Rheingau; Castello di Verduno in Piemont; Dominio de Pingus in Ribera del Duero in Spain; and Pepper Tree in Hunter Valley in Australia.
Eva's dry estate Riesling is a blend from several Rheingau sites including the second selection from Seligmacher, Schlossberg and Krone (mostly grey slate, as above), Rüdesheimer Kirchenpfad (purchased from Leitz, sandy loess and loam) and some Kiedricher sites (sandy loess and loam with a lot of quartzite).
