The Riesling Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Terroir Spätlese restsüß of Winery Hoffmann-Simon is a fantastically wine of rich flavors, and the sweetness of the late harvest. It inspires with its balance between fruit and mineral acid. The Winery Hoffmann-Simon stands for sustainable and natural production. The soils, mostly slate with layer-specific admixture are supported only with nitrogen-poor compost fertilizer. In order to preserve the natural diversity of the biosphere, Dieter Hoffman lets various plants proliferate between the plots. His preparation is gentle and benefits the environment, as well as the quality and resilience of the wines. In hand-picking the grapes of the Riesling Spätlese Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Terroir are selected after they were allowed to ripen in favor of optimum sugar. Sedimentation clarifies the grapes before they are lifted into the air press. This prevents bitters from getting through the breaking of cores into the wine. Precious yeasts initiate the fermentation, after which own yeasts assume the fermentation spontaneously. Afterwards, the wine stayes a few months on the yeast and is bottled in the typical Schlegel bottle.
