Weinreich Bechtheimer Schwarzriesling 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

This Ortswein (the second tier in the three tier VDP system) wine comes from grapes grown solely on Bechtheim’s finest vineyards. Clusters are pruned by half in the summer to ensure long and intense ripening on the vine. The remaining ripe grapes are harvested by hand and fermented on skins with wild yeasts. The wines then age in large oak barrels and partly in barriques until bottling at the end of June. Varietal: Swarzriesling (Pinot Meunier) Viticulture: Certified Organic Alcohol: 13% Acidity: 4.8 g/l Residual sugar: .1 g/l Serving Temperature: 16-20 °

External Reviews for Weinreich Bechtheimer Schwarzriesling

External Review
Vintage: 2009 12/12/2014

The name literally means black Riesling. The grape is actually an early ripening mutation of Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir). In France it is referred to as Pinot Meunier. The vineyards are located in Bechtheimer, Reinhessen. An intense "green harvest" helps the vines produce rich and spicy grapes. The resulting wine exhibits a light cherry color, with aromas and flavors of bing cherry, and pepper, with a kiss of vanilla. At 13% alcohol this wine is refreshing and delicious. The Estate has just completed the process of organic certification, and the next vintages released will be ‘officially’ certified, but organic practices have held for some time now and are another reason to truly enjoy this wine.
