About the wine
The sloping vineyards of the Leistenberg are characterised predominantly by clay slate soils. This dry, blackish-grey slate is perfect for producing superbly elegant wines. Our characterful dry Riesling wines from these soils are therefore named after this ancient rock. Tonschiefer translates as clay slate. Age of vines 25 30 years. 100% selective hand harvest. Fermented and matured in stainless steel vats and large oak barrels.
Characterful with superb finesse, this super focused wine is packed with pure fruit notes of white peaches, zesty lemons and grapefruit. A smoky, flinty minerality adds complexity and traction to this elegant Riesling.
