Domaine Rolly Gassmann Riesling Kappelweg de Rorschwihr 2019
Domaine Rolly Gassmann have 5.67 hectares of the lieu-dit Kappelweg de Rorschwihr, which is located at 220 to 235 metres above sea level. The vines sit on ancient blue-grey marl limestone soil which lends the wines vibrant acidity and intense concentration. The vineyards are managed following organic and biodynamic principles but are not certified. For this wine, fermentation lasted for around five months before spending around two months on lees and ageing for a further eleven months. The wine was then aged in large, used oak barrels until bottling the following September. The Riesling Kappelweg de Rorschwihr displays a powerful character with layers of ripe stone fruit and underlying citrus notes, balanced by a racy acidity culminating in a long finish.
