Intense brilliant freshness underscores the sweetness of ripe fruit
Overlooking the Rhine as it stretches westward past Wiesbaden, the Rheingau is a region with stunning views and magnificent historic estates. The Hochheim area, with south facing slopes and chalky, mineral rich soil, is renowned for the outstanding quality of its Rieslings. Here, Dr Franz Werner Michel is the 7th generation to head the Domdechant Werner estate, assisted by his daughter Catharine Mauritz. It was founded in 1780 and comprises today a stylish manor house and vineyards that overlook the picturesque city of Mainz and the Rhine and Main river valleys. Made purely from estate grown fruit, handpicked from this apogee of Hochheim, Domdechaney, this is a very fine Auslese that will age for decades to come. A masterpiece to savour.
"Lovely pure and piquant. A gastronomic Auslese with a piquant acidity and a lovely Fruchtspiel"
