Max Ferdinand Richter Zeppelin Riesling 2022
Out of stock
The Mülheim Sonnenlay (translates: Sunshine and slatestone) is a steep single vineyard facing southwest-west with slate stone and clay loom soil.
The wine from this hill was successfully served in the 1920s and 1930s on board of the luxurious restaurant on the airship “Graf Zeppelin”. To commemorate that privilege Hans Schlösser, a local artist painter and member of the famous “Bauhaus”-movement designed the art deco label incorporating the Zeppelin. That label has been proudly used since then.
This wine was fermented down to off-dry levels. The nose is initially quite reduced and driven by residual scents from spontaneous fermentation. It reveals lively notes of grapefruit, lemon, herbs and green apple. The wine is nicely structured on the palate, where a delicately smooth and fruity touch of sweetness add some charm to the wine. The finish is refreshing and reveals Riesling raciness, due to well integrated ripe acid.
