SYBILLE KUNTZ SPÄTLESE TROCKEN 2016
Spätlese trocken has a yellow label symbolizing for when the berries are fully yellow and completely ripe in the steep slope site Niederberg-Helden.
The Spätlese is picked late, like the name suggests, towards the end of harvest. After one or even several pre-picking passes the main harvest starts in the top site of Niederberg-Helden. It is steep, and the sun beats down on the mountain. Here we are working in steep slopes of up to 70% incline that descend south to the Moselle river. The boxes slide down with us on the slate floor from post to post, held by the knees of the harvesters. The boxes solely contain golden-yellow Riesling grapes, from which the best dry Riesling, the Spätlese, is made.
