BASTIAN 2015 STEEGER ST. JOST RIESLING LATE HARVEST
Even though the vineyards of the "St. Jost" are more than a kilometer away from the river Rhine, in the vineyards of the village of Steeg - next to Bacharach - grow some of the best Rieslings of the Rhine. The soil of the single vineyard "St. Jost" consists of slate mixed with clay and sandy sediments, resulting from the volcanic activities in the Eifel thousands of years ago.
The Riesling St. Jost from Friedrich Bastian has a elegant structure and slight flowery flavors. Even when aged this wine keeps its decent fruit and lightness.
