For numerous connoisseurs and wine enthusiasts, it represents the king of white wines due to its quality, unique aroma and bouquet. It ripens late, requires the best sites, a good autumn, as well as very careful and meticulous winemaking technique.
It was introduced to our vineyards from the Rhineland in the beginning of the 19th century. It established its home here, and now, in addition to Furmint, can be found on the best sites. Verus’ vineyards, planted with Riesling, are over 30 years old. These old vines give smaller yields, but bear highly varietal, aromatic and rich wines.
While young, our Riesling has a fresh, fruity aroma reminiscent of the scent of white peaches and acacia flowers. With aging, the wine develops new, complex notes of honey, cinnamon or dried apricots.
Gentle lemon colors with greenish hues. The flower is youthfully fresh. Ripe red apples, apricots, limes. A little dramatic, inviting, a little more embryonic. Dry mouth, medium body, acids are high, mature. The texture in the mouth emphasizes freshness. The taste in the mouth is nicely accentuated. The wine opens nicely in the mouth and shows its variety. Still very young, but with nice potential and a long decline.
