About This Wine...
“Schieferblume is a blend of several parcels and can be considered the entry-level wine of the estate. As often found to be the case with natural wines, the first nose does not give away a lot. I got sour apples, which got the company of lime and stone fruit on the second day when the wine had finally opened up. The palate shows a striking minerality but without the typical acidity that you would expect in a more traditional Mosel wine. There is freshness and purity, but it is not driving the wine. This gives it a certain mellowness, which is compensated by the limey sensation as well as the minerality that continues in the finish. There is a bit of an austere streak that may take some time getting used to but it is a great introduction to natural Riesling.” The Wine Analyst.
