N° 4 - Riesling AYL (Village)
The Ayler Riesling N° 4 comes from the Scheidterberg and Sonnenberg side hills, and was fermented down to fully off-dry levels of residual sugar (32 g/l). It offers a superb nose made of beautifully floral elements (typical of the Scheidterberg), white peach, lemon, grapefruit, chalky minerals, elderflower, and smoke. The wine is gorgeously racy and playful on the palate, and leaves a stunningly intense and pure feel of orchard fruits, minerals, and flowers in the still delicately tart finish. This superb effort only needs a couple of years to smoothen its edges.
