Johann Donabaum’s Spizer Riesling comes from vines on the steep hills above the town of Spitz offering attractive red apple fruit and mineral freshness

Johann’s Spizer Riesling comes from vines on the steep hills above the town, the grapes are hand harvested and undergo fermentation in tank and a further 4 months on their yeast lees before bottling. Offering an attractive nose of mineral wrapped red apples and hints of peach and an elegant palate with real length and a dry mineral finish.
