On the nose, this wine has aromas of fresh lemon and yellow plum, with minerality with excellent freshness. The sweetness and crisp acidity are well balanced, resulting in a Riesling with a refreshing, off-dry finish. The ‘Monopol’ Riesling is a blend from two prestigious vineyards: Herrenberg and Abtsberg. Both vineyards are south facing providing optimal sun exposure, however, they vary in soil type. The vines of the Abtsberg grow on blue Devonian slate, while the Herrenberg site is dominated by red Devonian slate.
