Riesling ‘von Rotem Schotter’, Ott
The dry Riesling of Bernhard Ott, Riesling vom Rotem Schotter, is produced from red, gravelly soils at a higher elevation than his Grüner Veltliners. The mark of minerality is strong here as well, and as with all wines it is fermented and aged in stainless steel before being bottled under Stelvin closure.
This has that salumeria-earthy sweetness of the Grand Cru Altenberg (Berghaim, Alsace), with the deep savor of roasted beets
and the green edge of woodruff. It gets more herbal with air but remains savory. An agreeable oxidative touch gives it a soulful
patina. – Terry Theise
