Axel Pauly `Generations` Riesling Feinherb
Axel Pauly `Generations` Riesling Feinherb was harvested from the family's steeply sloping vineyard in Lieser. Here, the soil is predominantly grey and blue slate, which is cooler than the red slate of neighbouring Bernkastel and gives more minerally wines than the latter. Stringent crop-thinning and leaf-plucking ensured excellent flavour concentration in the ripe grapes, which were sorted and picked manually to ensure only the best berries were selected at harvest time.
Axel Pauly `Generations` Riesling Feinherb is bright yellow with green reflections. Fresh hay aromas mingle with yellow fruits. On the palate, the wine is tangy, with subtle fruits and a hint of minerality. The sweetness and high acidity are well balanced, with a dry finish.
