Reviews of purchase Johannes Zillinger, "Numen" Riesling, 2012
The wine is golden yellow.
The wine has an expressive, refreshing, multi-layered taste, in which the accents of ripe fruits are complemented with spicy strokes and elegantly tinted with a mineral haze. The aftertaste is stable and harmonious.
The wine has a complex, rich, exquisite aroma. The notes of the green apple, dried apricots and grapes are highlighted by the nuances of minerals and light spicy halftones.
The wine is well combined with dishes from poultry and fish. It is best served with quails, fried chicken, as well as light meat, snacks and vegetables.
Johannes Zillinger, "Numen" Riesling - white dry wine, created in a biodynamic way with minimal interference from winemakers. The main idea of the creators was to demonstrate the richness of nature and fully realize the potential of the "old vines". A characteristic feature of the whole series of "Numen" in the natural expressiveness of wine.
To create the wine "Numen" Riesling used vines, the age of which reached the 30-year mark. Soils of the vineyard located on the Haidthal slope are sandy, which provides future wine with exquisite mineral notes and a refined taste. Hand-picked berries are subjected to spontaneous fermentation and subsequent delicate pressing. Further, the wort is fermented and aged on a natural sediment for 16 months in steel tanks. Before bottling wine is not filtered.
The main principle of the production of wines Johannes Zillinger - complete harmony with nature and the environment. On 20 hectares of vineyards with sandy-clay and loess soils cultivated grape variety Grüner Veltliner, Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Zweigelt and Regent. The harmonious combination of long tradition with biodynamic methods, products fully disclose the nature and personality of the local terroir.
In addition to the production of organic wines, Johannes Zillinger produces natural grape juice from untreated grapes.
