Grape variety: Riesling
Stefan Steinmetz crafts beautiful, classic Mosel wines with minimal intervention in the vineyard and cellar. The Wintricher Geierslay Sur Lie comes from purple, blue-colored slate soils with quartzite. The valley at high-altitude provides a cooler microclimate, resulting in an extremely elegant Riesling with citrus, pink grapefruit, honeydew melon, herbs, salinity and an intense minerality. Complex and elegant and with the potential for keeping for up to 20 years.
