Lechburg Organic Riesling 2019/20

Juicy, easy to drink, with an excellent acidic structure

Producer | Lechburg
Country of origin |
Region | Lechinta, Transylvania
Grape Variety |
One of the finest white grapes of them all, Riesling is floral, with high acidity, and can be bone-dry as well as extremely sweet. Tremendous ageing potential.
Vintage | 2019/20
Size | Bottle / 75cl
ABV | 13.50%
Style |
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
