Full-bodied, mineral Riesling wine with a fruit nose of great finesse and classic acidity. The sloping vineyards of the Leistenberg are characterised predominantly by clay slate soils. This dry, blackish-grey slate is perfect for producing superbly elegant wines. Riesling wines from these soils are therefore named after this ancient rock. Tonschiefer translates as clay slate.

“Predominantly from the Leistenberg plus first selections of the local crus, the 2020 Riesling Tonschiefer opens enormously pure and stony as well as citric on the earthy nose that is a terrific representative for the clayish slate terroir. Complex and juicy on the palate, this is a tensioned, finely reductive yet very intense and structured dry Riesling with fine phenolic grip and an expressive finish with salty-piquant and phenolic acidity. An impressive wine. 12% alcohol. Tasted at the domain in July 2021.” – 93 Pts, Stephan Reinhardt, RobertParker.com
