Domaine Geschickt Grand Cru Kaefferkopf Riesling 2019


'A Riesling hand-harvested from the complex terroir of the Grand Cru Kaefferkopf vineyard where the vines are old and the yield is very low. It was aged for 14 months in foudre and old barriques.

This eastern-facing vineyard which sits at about 300 metres above sea level is very famous and thoroughly deserves the Grand Cru status.

The soils are derived from both granite and limestone which are responsible for the complex minerality found in wines made from these vines.

Geschickt has two Grand Cru parcels in Kaefferkopf. The first is le Purberg where the soil is limestone and clay and the second is le Pfulben which sees granite rocks protruding from fairly fine siltstone.'
