Description

Château Belá has a long standing wine making history. The first vines were planted by the Romans. Egon Muller has discovered the potential in Slovakia and makes a dry Riesling which objective is to challenge the best Rieslings from Germany, Austria and the Alsace region.

A surprisingly refined Riesling whose limely flavours and a texture are reminiscent of classic German Riesling, yet retaining a mout-watering mineral crispness on the finish revealing its wild edges.

[Jancis Robinson 17.5/20] Lively citrus aroma – lemon and grapefruit pith. This tastes off dry because of the ripe citrus sweetness but Egon Müller tells me it is dry, and the acidity is so intense that it is sweet/sour. Really crisp on the finish but rich too. So intense. Drink from 2019-2027.
