Wine Description:
The terroir of Riesling Grand Cru Engelberg comprises three south-facing terraces. A shallow soil layer rests on firm limestone, compelling the roots to penetrate through limestone cracks. Grapes ripen consistently, attaining remarkable balance at maturity. The wines mirror the terroir's character, showcasing high aromatic concentration, fullness, and a tight acid structure, making it suitable for aging. While the young wine displays impressive overall harmony, the true sophistication and complexity of Engelberg emerge after a few years.
