Hubertus Clüsserath Riesling Trocken

Carefully selected and hand-picked grapes result is a very fine, fruit-driven wine, with a palate that’s full of nuance and finesse, with long lasting mineral flavours: peach, apricot and apple, as well as citrus fruit and herbs, are typical features of the aroma of this dry wine.

In contrast to fermentation with industrially selected yeast cultures, spontaneous fermentation from the naturally occurring yeasts on the grape skin converts the grape sugar into alcohol. These yeast cultures, each of which is dominant at different stages of fermentation, turn the sweet grape juice into delicious Mosel Riesling. The diversity of natural yeasts enhances the complexity of the wine and gives authentic expression to its character, linking it to its terroir. Another advantage of spontaneous fermentation is the lower alcohol yield.
