The Riesling is the number one in the viticulture of Germany, for many it is the German white grape variety par excellence. For the first time the variety was mentioned in 1435 in Germany. It is a natural crossing of Heunisch and Traminer. The Riesling is unquestionably one of the most noble white grapes in the world. Riesling is cultivated on almost 50,000 hectares worldwide with an increasing tendency, with 23,400 hectares in Germany alone and around 1,800 hectares in Austria, where it is located in the best vineyards of the Kremstal, Kamptal and Wachau.
The special feature of the Riesling is its unique balance between exotic fruit, minerality, body, extract and its fine acid, which gives it a wonderful freshness. First-class Rieslings are also very long-lasting and develop with a growing age a wide range of beautiful maturity aromas. The Riesling brings the best results in rather cool cultivation zones, where it can mature long and evenly. Rieslings can be dry, semi sweet or noble-sweet, even delicate wooden notes are possible, as more and more Grosse Gewachse show, which follow the example of the Palatinate winery of Winning.
