"An animating fragrance reflects the ripe fruit aromas of local orchards. On the palate the Westhofen dry Riesling is generous in every department, from firm body to uncompromising acidity, juicy and crunchy fruit to ample texture. A stony minerality on the finish adds that little extra to lift this wine into the superior bracket of village trocken. (MS) " –June 2015
The term VDP Gutswein (estate wine) is used for the basic range of wines from a producer who is a member of the VDP, Germany's top growers association. The Wittmann Estate Riesling Trocken is harvested by hand from estate-owned vineyards around the village of Westhofen. It is fermented with native yeasts and matured in large, neutral oak casks.
