Blank Bottle Jan Niemand
From a very special echalas trained Riesling vineyard above a small tributary named Jan Niemand – just 400 bottles made! This labour intensive style of pruning and training is most commonly found on the steep slopes of the Mosel and the Northern Rhone, where the vine is trained up a single pole like a staircase (hence the label!). It’s labour intensive and costly, but known for producing phenomenal quality of fruit, and in turn, wines of distinction, just as we have here. Quite heady and floral on the nose, with a stoniness too, mango and tangerine and lime zest, with a bit of weight on the palate and long, dry, mouth-watering palate.
