Staatlicher Hofkeller Würzburg Würzburger Stein Riesling Kabinett Trocken 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Staatlicher Hofkeller Würzburg is one of the oldest wine estates in Europe, dating back to 1128 and owns 160 ha of vineyards. The winery is based in the former royal court cellars at the UNESCO listed Residence of the Prince Bishops of Würzburg. Thanks to good vineyard management, investment in the cellar and the use of modern winemaking techniques, Franconia is a resolutely modern and distinctive wine. The more southerly location of the vineyards helps result in a dry style of German wine without the boniness that characterises many a trocken. Harvest is always done by hand. This interesting blend is light, lemon yellow in colour with greenish lights. Fresh and zesty on the nose and palate with yellow and green fruit character. Very well balanced acidity with well integrated residual sugar and great length. Sealed with a vinolok to ensure there is no cork taint.
