Weegmuller "Von 4 Morgen" Riesling Auslese 2017, Pfalz - half bottle

A rich, fruity Auslese, with vibrant notes of mango and juicy yellow peach. Spicy sweetness and orange blossom notes are beautifully balanced by a refreshing finish.

Producer Note

Weingut Weegmüller has over 300 years of winemaking history. The Weegmüller sisters Stefanie and Gabrielle have excelled in making delicious wines from the Palatinate region for over 30 years. Having started in 1984, owner Stefanie was one of the first female winemakers in Germany’s wine industry. Not only has she mastered all the technical aspects of winemaking, but she brings both heart and soul to her work. Gabrielle carefully manages the commercial aspects of the business. The vineyards are farmed organically and the yields are restricted to gain concentration and weight, resulting in wines that are wonderfully rich and food friendly.

Vintage

2017 was characterised as being a dry year with hardly any rainfall during the winter and spring. This continued throughout the growing season, with the Pfalz region receiving significantly less rain than usual. Finally, the rain came at the end of August, just prior to the early harvest. Picking started on 9th September and although the yield was reduced by approximately 20%, the quality was good.

Vineyard

The grapes are produced in the outstanding vineyard sites of the Mittelhaardt. Almost 90% of Weingut Weegmüller vineyards are located in the top classified region of Haardt. This district takes its name from the low-lying Haardt Mountains, which play a vital role in the terroir here. The soils are composed of sand and clay, over a deep slate. The vineyard is managed following organic principles and the vines are cultivated with minimal intervention.

Winemaking

This sweet wine has been made from botrytised Riesling grapes, which have been late harvested and then fermented in 100% stainless steel at approximately 16°C in order to preserve the fresh and fruity aromas.

Tasting Note

Golden in colour, this is rich, fruity Auslese, with vibrant notes of ripe apricots and juicy yellow peach. Spicy sweetness and mandarin notes are beautifully balanced by a refreshing palate through to a wonderful lingering finish.

Serving Suggestion

Try as an apéritif with finger food; to accompany desserts with exotic fruit; or wonderful with cheese such as ripe Camembert or blue cheese.
