Winemaker: Friedrich Groebe
Aulerde riesling grosses gewächs 2006: 100% Riesling. The fruit is hand-selected from a single classified vineyard site, and therefore, production is limited. The wine undergoes a long, cool fermentation in oak and is then slowly aged in oak barrels to ensure terroir-driven wines at their best.
