This Riesling is awesome for the price and is a real surprise. In the midst of countless conventional winemakers in the hill country of Rheinhessen Bianka and Daniel Schmitt took a different path.
The grapes for Riesling from DB Schmitt were picked by hand, selected, brought into the barrel by means of whole bunch pressing and left there to their own devices. Unsulphurized and unfiltered he comes in the bottle. The result is super lively, funky, with nice fruit. Freshly opened, it smells exotic of passion fruit, pineapple, but also of gooseberries and ripe yellow pears and yellow apples.
