Lush exotic fruits in the nose make it a perfect pairing for spicy or intensely flavored cuisines or simply in a glass on its own. Vineyard notes: grapes for our gutsriesling are harvested from the areas bordering our top classified sites on the kiedrich grafenberg; the medium to deep soil is composed of stony fragmented phyllite interlaced with loess and loam; and the steep southwest facing vineyards include inclines of up to 60 %.” – weingut robert weil
