Manfred Breit Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Auslese 2016


Sold Out

Holger Breit, who has been running the estate since 2000 and is supported by his wife Christin, has enlarged the business through acquisitions, particularly in Piesporter Goldtröpfchen. But it is not only represented in the Goldtröpfchen, also in other Piesporter locations such as Günterslay, Falkenberg and Treppchen as well as in Dhroner Hofberg. In addition to Riesling (65 percent of the area), he grows some Pinot Blanc, Bacchus and Müller-Thurgau as well as Pinot Noir. The focus of the program, however, is always on the residual sweet Rieslings, which have been defined since 2007 based on the time of harvest: The first reading of the Goldtröpfchen results in the cabinet, the second selection the late harvest, the "most valuable" grapes are vinified in the Auslese. The wines are aged in stainless steel, partly after maceration, partly they are fermented spontaneously.
