The wines from Hohen-Sülzen have a distinctive characteristic. The freshness! Despite the very high grape ripeness of the '1. Lage' from Battenfeld-Spanier, the Riesling from Hohen-Sülzen retains an unusual freshness. Magic? Maybe...
The winemaker Hans Oliver Spanier tries to explain it with the cool nights in the Eisbachtal. The name is no coincidence! Says Spanier. A cold mountain stream flows at the foot of the vineyard, which cools the temperature of the entire valley and thus maintains the freshness of the wine.
The Battenfeld-Spaniard Hohen-Sülzen Riesling shines in the glass, light yellow with metallic-green reflections. The scents of ripe stone fruit, dried apricots, spicy herbs and nutmeg are topped off with a pinch of white pepper and suggest a strong and heavy Riesling. But a playful freshness appears in the mouth, which puts a stop to the very strong aromas and harmonizes the wine. The finish lasts for a long time and mainly reflects the spicy components of sage, thyme and bay leaf. An ideal accompaniment to red lentil curry, monkfish tagine or chicken with sage and dried apricots.
