La Violetta Das Sakrileg Riesling 2016

assakrilegA wine that in a few short vintages has rocketed to the top of my riesling list. Kudos to perennially red-shirted winemaker Andrew Hoadley. A wild fermented riesling that hangs out in old oak puncheons for its pre-bottle life. Sourced from varying vineyards in the region. “I’m trying to make a wine with a touch of spritz”, Hoadley explains. Not sure if he is serious or not. He does explain he likes the mineral-charged feel of German rieslings, and seeks similar. Like it anyway.
