Crushed & Cured
Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll Riesling, Emil Bauer & Sohne, Pfalz, 2020
A dry Riesling with crisp acidity and expressive peach and lychee fruit. Typical flavours of citrus fruits, minerality and crunchy green apples. Refreshingly dry finish.
All grapes come from the Bauer estate which comprises numerous vineyard sites around the town of Neustadt in der Pfalz. Some lie right on the boarder of Alsace making wines from this region not dissimilar in style. The grapes are grown sustainably, with as little intervention as possible, using natural/organic fertilisers. The wine is made in a classical style, inoculated yeast, stainless steel ferment and racked off the lees after fermentation to protect the primary fruit flavours, with a third being fermented in oak barrel giving more complexity that stainless steel alone.
