Vinification of the Riesling from Winzerhof Gussek
This wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, and that is Riesling. Only the best grape material was used for this wonderfully balanced varietal wine from Winzerhof Gussek. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Saale Unstrut. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of limestone and sandstone. Riesling is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this German wine exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. After the harvest, the grapes are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Once fermentation is complete, the Riesling can continue to harmonize on the fine lees for several months.
