Terrassen Berg Kaisersteinfels Riesling Trocken Grosses Gewächs, Leitz

Terrassen Berg Kaisersteinfels Riesling Trocken Grosses Gewächs, Leitz - 2019

Item # 47322 750mL

This intensely mineral and smoky, yet richly fruited, white spends 21 months aging on the lees, giving beautiful texture. Complex and ageworthy, this will pair well with Mangalitsa pork in Riesling mustard sauce.
