Fruit reception begins with a vibrating hopper that gently shakes the grapes into the destemmer, which has a smooth plastic cage in order not to break any berries. Grapes are gently pressed and the juices are vinified at low temperatures to retain varietal character. Fermentation is arrested at a low alcohol level to achieve a fully integrated wine that retains fresh Riesling character.
Deep golden yellow. Delicate floral and citrus, rich orange peel characters of Botrytis. A long crisp palate of sweet honey, preserved lemon and ripe citrus flavours. Varietal Riesling characters are still apparent and meld with Botrytis flavours to create a crisp style of dessert wine with a lingering taste and refreshing finish. Josef Chromy will develop rich palate weight and more honeyed characters. Match with desserts, sorbets or gateaux.
