Eva Fricke 'Lorch Schlossberg Spätlese' Riesling
Gray slate & chalk, lychee, passion fruit & rose petals, crystalline, filigree & clear almost salty minerality.
This dynamic young grower farms 13 hectares of vines centred on the super-steep and stony slopes of the western Rheingau.
Eva’s holy grail is to capture her site’s potential balance between ripeness, salinity and acidity. Her transparent, ever-evolving winemaking approach includes wild yeast fermentation, long, slow pressing and plenty of time on lees, always geared to capture the mineral personality and trademark salinity of the region, without ever compromising on terroir-driven fruit expression
