The Riesling Ortenberg grows on sandy and granitic hillsides. South-South-East exposure confers him its special character and uniqueness.
It benefits from a good amount of sunshine during the ripening period, so that the wine that it produced is distinguished from others by its fresh, ripe and lemony acidity.
This Riesling is racy and green. Keeps well and a few years of cellaring will bring up its mineral character.
It marries well with sea food, fish, chicken, sauerkraut, and pies.
May also be a partner to soft cheese.
