The 'King of White Wines' requires Franonia's sunniest vineyards. In terms of climate, this elder statesman of grape varieties claims the best, sunniest, southern exposure slopes. Riesling wines fascinate because of their elegance, spirit, abundance of nuances and an invigorating fruit acidity. Due to a long maturation period in connection with a late harvest, the varietal Riesling character and qualities of the wine unfold in perfect form. In peak years premium-class Auslese, Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese substantiate the worldwide reputation of this variety.
The Riesling rewards the patience of the winemaker even more with its clear, radiance and balanced, yet playful, variety of fruit aromas and its subtle acidity. These wines blend in particularly well with seafood, shellfish, white meat or delicate cream sauces. Lastly, the noble sweet premium Rieslings make delightful dessert wines.
