Josmeyer - Riesling Kottabe
Biodynamic. The old vines are situated in the Herrenweg of Turckheim, where the flat alluvial deposits of the Fecht river are rich in clay, sand, shingle, silt, with a high incidence of pebbles and frequent plates of loess. Similar to the soil of Graves, this terroir offers aromatic, ripe, voluptuous and elegant wines.
Forty years old vines. Hand harvested. Natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Aged 12 months on the lees in large century old foudres. RS 2g/l.
This is a pure and mineral Riesling with delicate spice, firm peach and some herbaceous notes. The dry palate keeps these vivid citrus notions but backs them with a riper backing track that suggests Mirabelle plum. The wine has elegance, sinuousness and a svelte but concentrated nature. The dry finish is fresh and appetizing.
