Heymann-Lowenstein Riesling Scheifferterrassen From Terraces of Slate 2015

Heymann-Lowenstein Riesling Scheifferterrassen From Terraces of Slate 2015

While unfettered pleasure is the reflex response elicited by classic Mosel Riesling, the often overt power and disorienting range of Heymann-Löwenstein tends to be more thought-provoking. Or, more realistically, mind-blowing. The Schieferterassen is the cornerstone of the estate’s collection, and is sourced from various terraced, slate-soil vineyards in the region. From the nose to the palate this wine shows a playful synthesis of fine nuances between fragrant fruit and minerals. The palate shows nashi pear, ripe citrus fruits, spice and a wet-slate character. It's piercing, engaging and long.

The Wine Front – Heymann-Lowenstein is one of those great producers if you wanted a brilliant German riesling introduction or to show a non-believer, Australian riesling tragic that German riesling has drinkability in spades. This wine usually sees some day or so of skin contact, quite a bit of botrytised fruit included. Complexity is a calling card at the bucks. Screwcap too… Quite honeyed, toasty, but still with that scintillating dart of searing acidity to keep you sweating on your forehead with the whoosh of freshness. It shows scents of rockmelon, ripe stone fruits, ripe apple, honey, toast. The palate is soft, spreads on its gentle gloss of honey on fruit character, and yeah, that acidity crackles beneath. Delicious, simply.
