Monchhof Riesling 2009
Grown on all iron-infused Devon Slate, this wine first feels like biting into a ripe white peach, juicy, rich, creamy and sweet, with a full aroma. Yet the wine offers great minerality and acidity to balance the sweetness and make it, well... a delicious joy. Most of the fruit comes from the famous grand cru vineyard site “Würtzgarten” (spice garden) in the town of Ürzig, which gives the wine its spicy profile.
