The Rhine Riesling grape, native to the Rhine Valley, has been grown in the vineyards of the Cembra Valley for decades. On sunlit southern slopes the grapes develop aromas that are preserved by the significant temperature variations of the Alpine valleys. The La Vis Riesling is pale yellow in colour tending to green, and has a delicate bouquet blending aromas reminiscent of candied fruit and carob. The full, fruity and pleasantly acidic flavour tends to reach its full potential after ageing in the bottle for a few months.
