Falkenstein 2015 Riesling "Alte Reben"
This Alte Reben comes from single vineyard old vines. Franz and Bernadette planted their first riesling grapes in the “Alte Rebe” (old vine) parcel. All vines are about 30 years old, but the parcel is quite small and yields just 1,500 bottles a year. Grapes are hand harvested later than the other riesling parcels. Afterwards, they are processed very delicately and transferred to large acacia casks to start fermentation, remaining on the lees for 10 months. “Alte Rebe” is then cellared for a further 24 months.
