Alsace Riesling "Patience", Laurent Bannwarth 2009

Inventory Status: Out of Stock - do not order this
product at this time


This was vinified for at least 24 months on its lees before completing development and arriving at peak--on its own, using natural yeasts, without temperature control, without additives, and without added sulfites. After vinification the wine was allowed to settle and rest for at least another 12 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. I've never had Riesling like this that offers such broadness and depth  of flavors. Instead of being laser-focused, it is a full-blown, harmonic ensemble.
