(rhine) riesling, genesis vineyard, rare peak grade, badacsony, hungary.



Label story
  • Approaching harvest time, the grapes looked extraordinary beautiful, but the ripening was blocked and they tasted hard with raw tannins due to lack of water. Luckily for us, there was a full day rain the 7th of October, which fully ripened the tannins in a week. Strange feeling to long for rain a week before harvest !
2011 'Magic Rain' originates from:
  • Genesis vineyard, 1st fraction
  • Single bottles when buying other Sandahl wines.

Tasting summer 2016
  • Color: Medium yellow color.
  • Smell: Tons of elegant petrol and diesel. On its apogee for sure, open, pleasurable smell.
  • Taste: Soft, round, rich, but very subtle in a good preserved juice. Almost too soft after taste.
  • Judgement: For vine lovers preferring a mature Riesling.
  • Limited stock, used for exhibitions and wine festivals
