Nik Weis' Schiefer Riesling 2015 keeps what the name promises. The slate soil (Schieferboden) around this vineyard make this Riesling a filigrane and mineral-piquant Riesling.
In the glass you see a wonderful yellow. You will immediatley experience the legendary Mosel aroma of fresh apples, apricot and white flowers which cannot be nicer. Full of freshness and a full juicy character it animates you to quickly reach for the second glass.
This wine has a beautiful harmony between, acidity, fruit and sweetness and perfect mineral structure. This a a very nice representation of what a Riesling should be: elegant, authentic, clear and its own personality.
The vines for this Riesling grow on gray slate which provide a wonderful minerality.
Enjoy it with scampi and honey melon, goat cheese salad or a light pasta.
Drink now or keep until 2025
