As if that wasn't already impressive, vanilla, cocoa bean and dark chocolate join the mix due to the aging in stainless steel
This wine delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with only 8.1 grams of residual sugar. As you would naturally expect from a wine in the icon wine segment, this German wine naturally enraptures with the finest balance despite all its dryness. Taste does not necessarily need a lot of residual sugar. This dense white wine presents itself full of pressure and facets on the palate. Due to its vital fruit acid, the Mönchshof Silvaner Großes Gewächs reveals itself wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. In the finish, this white wine from the wine-growing region of Franconia finally inspires with considerable length. There are again hints of rose and violets. In the finish, mineral notes of the limestone-dominated soils are added.
Vinification of the Mönchshof Silvaner Großes Gewächs von Bickel-Stumpf
The basis for the powerful Mönchshof Silvaner Großes Gewächs from Franconia are grapes from the Silvaner grape variety. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Franconia. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into limestone soils. Of course, the Mönchshof Silvaner Großes Gewächs is also determined by climatic and stylistic factors of Frickenhausen. This German wine can be described as an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, presenting itself in an exceptionally impressive manner. The fact that the Silvaner grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has an influence on the ripeness of the grapes that cannot be denied. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and even grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. The grapes for this white wine from Germany are, at the time of optimal ripeness, exclusively harvested by hand. After the hand harvest, the grapes reach the winery by the fastest route. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. After the end of fermentation, the Mönchshof Silvaner Großes Gewächs can continue to harmonize on the fine lees for a few months.
