Riesling Description The Bernkasteler Johannisbrünnchen Riesling Eiswein has a clean, fresh taste, with racy, lasered overtones of candied citrus, dried apricots and smoky minerals. The finish is crisp and tangy.
Suggestion Pair this wine with all kind of sweet deserts (Créme Brulée, Ice cream, fruits). It is also well suited as an aperitif.
We say: „Harvested in the coldest morning of the year, this noble sweet Riesling is an awesome companion for any kind of desert and reminds us to the hard work in the vineyard and why we do it!
The Johannisbrünnchen is a part of the Bernkasteler Badstube (translated it means something like „the roman spa of Bernkastel). The main soil type in the Bernkasteler Johannisbrünnchen is a medium-deep clay-slated residual soil having varying parts of loam and stone mineral content. In some areas one encourters pure slate having a high mineral content. Due to high elevation we have lower average temperatures than in most vineyards.
