Tasting Notes

Alter Weg translates to the ‘old way’, describing our approach to this Riesling. Certified organic, ripe balanced riesling fruit is harvested and gently pressed to large format barrel where it undergoes wild yeast fermentation. A further 10 months of ageing on full lees in barrel result in a superbly textured riesling with approachability and generosity of fruit, supported by the creamy textural element of this vibrant wine. No additions of any kind are used in the making of Alter Weg Riesling. All grapes are harvested as cool as possible and pressed immediately, slow press cycles allow for soft, long extraction of juice. Picking decisions are made on ripeness and fruitfulness, with the main aim of working with natural balance yet seeking greater ripeness.
