Heinrich Spindler 2015 Pechstein Riesling Grosse Lage

Pechstein means “pitch stone”—like tar—and it refers to the igneous rock basalt that comprises this site. This is decidedly “red” in aromatics and much more compact and dense than the Ungeheuer, despite the fact that it was entirely fermented in stainless steel. It has the cranberry’s tart outer rim but has the interior sweetness of cassis and berry compote.
