Weingut Würtzberg Riesling Kabinett ‘Terra Saar’

The grapes for this classic Saar Riesling wine were harvested in the wholly-owned vineyards of Weingut Würtzberg, the Serriger Herrenberg and Serriger Würtzberg. Both vineyards are classified as Große Lage and are two of the most spectacular sites in the Saar valley.

Spontaneously fermented in stainless steel tanks, this Saar Riesling is a classic: a perfectly balanced dry wine with typical Saar minerality that’s typical of the terroir, as its name suggests, with cool, lemon and lime zesty flavours, with just a hint of peach and fresh herbs.
