The vineyard on the Mandelberg hill is best known for its great Rieslings. Here is an excellent example, produced in minute quantities (125 cases). Its pure, steely, mineral fruit demands long-term aging. It has great acidity, flavors of currants and enticing, white-flower aromas. Imported by European Cellars.
