The Wine’s Story
When we first met Juliane Eller, this wine completely floored us with its amazing purity and weightlessness. For sure, it has lovely fruit and a long, refreshing finish but its that airy feeling when drinking it, that convinced us that Juliane is the chosen one. Her entry-level Riesling belongs to one of the most serious and elegant versions, we’ve ever encountered in this price range. It’s not difficult to produce “cheap” wines from the Riesling variety, but it’s virtually impossible to create true complexity and longevity without upping the EUR 20 mark. That said, this wine proves that it can be done. Just beautiful!
