Food Pairing Ideal for special occasions, it is delicious paired with light fruit pastries, cream pastries, and, last but far from least, pork.
The crown jewel of the Altenberg vineyard is a small site located beneath a small vineyard chapel. The roots of our vines, many upwards of 70 years old, grow deep into the steep slate slopes and the result is tiny, extremely mineral-packed berries. Small yields (20 hl/ha), slow spontaneous fermentation, and plenty of patience are the keys to our Saar Riesling's full-bodied complexity: a very special wine from a very special place.
