Vinification of the Schieferkristall Riesling from Winery Karthäuserhof
This white wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, and that is Riesling. For this wonderfully elegant single-varietal wine from Weingut Karthäuserhof, only first-class grape material was brought in. Schieferkristall Riesling is an Old World wine through and through, as this German wine breathes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. The fact that Riesling grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has a very high influence on the ripening of the vintage. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and even grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. After the hand harvest, the grapes quickly reach the winery. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally bottled.
Food recommendation for the Schieferkristall Riesling by Weingut Karthäuserhof
