Description of Peter Lauer Riesling Faß 12 Unterstenberg 2017

Peter Lauer Riesling Faß 12 Unterstenberg 2017 (Riesling)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Peter Lauer Riesling Faß 12 Unterstenberg 2017 is a beautiful pale gold with silver reflections.
  • Nose: This wine gives off a pleasant array of mineral tones backed up with the wholesome smell of fruit and herbs.
  • Mouth: Dry and elegant, this complex wine shines with its multi-layered flavour and persistent finish. The level of acidity is nicely set off by the mineral and fruit notes, which are followed by a slight floral flavour.

APPELLATION: Saar

VINEYARD: Weingut Peter Lauer. This vineyard has been around since 1830, founded by Matthias Könen and falling under the control of the Lauer family through marriage. It underwent a great expansion in 1956 after the successful purchase of another well-known vineyard. Peter Lauer wines continue to be known both domestically and internationally for their quality and character.

GRAPES: 100% Riesling

PREPARATION: After harvest, the Riesling grapes were processed and left to ferment spontaneously with only wild yeast. This vegan wine does not use any fining agents of an animal origin. The fass number in the name of the wines from Peter Lauer - in this case, Fass 12 - identifies the barrel in which the wine was fermented. This barrel is reused for the same portion of the vineyard year the following year in order to retain similar populations of wild yeast.

PAIRING: Peter Lauer Riesling Faß 12 Unterstenberg 2017 marries well with many different types of food including seafood, spicy dishes, pork, and poultry.

RIGHT SERVING RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 8-10ºC

ALCOHOL: 12%

The Winery

Peter Lauer

Peter Lauer

The history of the winery Peter Lauer starts in 1830 with a vintner named Matthias Könen. It was the wedding between his daughter and the wine grower, Matthias Lauer, in 1904, when the business fell into the hands of the Lauer family. And this vintner fusioned his wife's vineyards with his own.
