Vinification of the Emrich-Schönleber Frühtau Monzinger Riesling
The elegant Frühtau Monzinger Riesling from Germany is a single-varietal wine made from the Riesling grape variety. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in the Nahe region. The vines here dig their roots deep into soils of slate. Frühtau Monzinger Riesling is an Old World wine through and through, as this German wine exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. After the hand harvest, the grapes arrive at the winery by the fastest route. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The fermentation is followed by a few months of maturation on the fine lees before the wine is finally bottled.
