Weingut Würtzberg ‘Scivaro’ Riesling Gutswein

In old German, ‘Scivaro’ means slate, and this is exactly how this wine is intended to taste.

The grapes for this classic Saar Riesling wine were harvested in the estate’s wholly-owned vineyards of Weingut Würtzberg – the Serriger Herrenberg and Serriger Würtzberg – both classified as Große Lage and belonging to some of the most spectacular sites the Saar valley has to offer. A small quantity of grapes from the Serriger Antoniusberg vineyard were also added.

The rocky slate soil creates a sense of high minerality and explains the origin of the name. This Riesling expresses a delicate character and attractive bouquet. It’s a wine with elegance, clarity and balanced fruitiness.

The nose is of herbs and lemon, whilst, on the palate, there’s citrus fruits, peach, dried herbs and flowery nuances which convey a taste of juiciness and unmatched freshness.

It was spontaneously fermented in stainless steel tanks and in large wooden barrels and, to balance out its natural acidity (a common feature of wines from the Saar region) the wine has a little bit more residual sugar.

A wine for every occasion and great drinking pleasure with a long, dry finish.
