Domaine Alice Hartmann 2017 Ahn Palmberg Riesling "Sous la Rocher"

Located in the southernmost (upper) region of the Mosel River Valley, the soil consists of pure limestone instead of the Devonian slate found along the Mosel in Germany. Palmberg's soil is rockier than Grevenmacher, hence why it is named "Sous la Rocher," or "under the rock." Just two miles downstream of Fels as the crow flies, it is higher on the slope and is sheltered by a limestone escarpment to the north. Like Fels, Hartmann's holdings here are terraced and average vine age is 50 years. This riesling was vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and contains slightly less residual sugar than the Gevenmacher Fels. Replete with raspberry and pink grapefruit, this wine is salty and stylish.
