Riesling Frühmessse is Juliane Eller's top wine. Old, low-yielding vines and extended aging on the lees are the foundations for this concentrated yet lively wine. Serious cellar potential for the patient.
The Wine’s Story
Already on the intriguing nose, you realize that this is serious material. The high-pitched aromas of stone fruits, oozing minerals and something reminiscent of a walk thru a tropical jungle (as seen on the Discovery Channel) add interest to this serious bottle of Riesling. Frühmesse is Juliane Eller’s best wine, and when tasting this generous, yet sleek, old vine bottling, you immediately realize that her Master knows wine better than Yoda.
