Schodl Riesling Rote Erde
Sourced from Schodl’s plot in the town of Blumenthal. Loess mixed with iron-rich sandstone soils. This makes the earth kind of red and so this Riesling is called “red soil” (rote erde in German). Grapes are harvested in mid-Oct. After destemming the berries have skin contact for a few hours to extract flavor from the skins. This Austrian Riesling has more slightly more body than it's German cousins, which balances out the racy acidity, resulting in a wonderful dry riesling!
