More information about Flonheimer Weisser Riesling - Weingut Espenhof

The Flonheimer Weisser Riesling from the Espenhof winery presents itself in the glass in an intense straw yellow with greenish reflections and inspires with its straightforward and lively bouquet. This contains the wonderful aromas of pears, crisp apples and citrus. These fruity notes are accompanied by subtle earthy and tart nuances.

This white wine is perfectly balanced with its vital acidity and dry fruit.

Vinification for the Flonheimer Weisser Riesling from the Espenhof Winery

This white wine is made from Riesling from the vineyards Flonheimer Binger Berg "Kisselberg" and Uffhofener La Roche. The vines grow there on the southern slope on soils with a sandy loess loam overlay. In the subsoil, shell limestone and rocky gravel boulder on the Kisselberg provide an intense MIneralik.

The grapes for this white wine are hand-picked, gently pressed and spontaneously fermented in stainless steel tanks and barrels of Wachau oak. The wine is then slowly fermented and aged in full yeast storage until bottling.

Food recommendation for the Flonheimer Weisser Riesling from the Espenhof Winery

Enjoy this dry white wine as an aperitif, with light appetizers, Asian dishes, grilled chicken breast in cream-lemon sauce, chanterelles or porcini dumplings.
