Wagner-Stempel, Fürfelder Melaphyr Riesling trocken 2020 Rheinhessen

16

Grown in iron-rich volcanic melaphyr sites around the village of Fürfeld. Naturally fermented and raised in 600-litre German oak barrels.
Smoky, stony reduction gives way to subtle stone-fruit aromas laced with an intense and not-to-be ignored spice of pink berry and white pepper. The concentrated and savoury palate is marked with complex flavours of pickled ginger and grapefruit. Stony grip and citrus sass. (PS)
