Description

100% Riesling. Records from as early as 1742 show that the ancestors of the Zilliken family were active as wine producers in both Saarburg and Ockfen. In 1976 Hanno Zilliken and his father succeeded in restoring the original estate to its former size after it had previously been partitioned through inheritances. In 2007, his oldest daughter, Dorothee joined the estate after completing her enology studies. Their grand cru vineyards are instrumental to their success and the Saarburger Rausch vineyard exhibits an interesting, subtle, dusty gout de terroir along with citrus, lemon balm and flint.
