- The Wine
The Innere Bergen vineyard is situated south of Huettberg which forms the highest point in Schrattenthal. Here the slopes are steeper and the soil is barren and stony. This prime location lies between 270 and 300 metres above sea level and faces south. The subsoil consists of granite with a very sparse covering of humus. On this primary rock site the Riesling really shows all its class. Here too, Zull have planted out various old selections of Riesling vines.
Complex fragrance of flowers and ripe stone fruit, hints of mineralic herbal spices, delicate smoky finishes very clearly stemming from the terroir. Boldly lingering on the palate, juicy fruits, vast depth, definitely needs time in the glass, long, powerful finish.
Superb accompaniment for grilled meat dishes, goose, duck and wildfowl, fattier fish such as salmon and catfish, sushi and sashimi, as well as riper white and red mould cheeses.

Riesling Innere Bergen
Maybe this is a wine that definitely needs the right food to partner with, or more time open before drinking, but a bit of a let down as I was maybe expecting a bit more given the maker. For me over-priced for what I got out of it.
