The colour is 24 carat gold with straw edges, the aroma is intense, full of dried fruit, juicy ripe apricot, honey and flowers. Thanks to the large proportion of botrytis grapes, the flavour onset is powerful with a distinct honeyed touch, spiciness and a hint of sweet exotic fruit. A wine with higher residual sugar but with a strong and tangy acidity. This combination promises beautiful ageing, and the best is yet to come for this Riesling.

"I see Riesling Ipsus as something special and unique, both in quality and in the fact that it is the first and probably the last semi-sweet Riesling in Sonberg's history. It is a unique wine of the 2021 vintage, which has been in our tank for a long time and all the time I have perceived its uniqueness. We thought for a long time whether to break the taboo that Sonberk does not make semi-sweet wines, especially Riesling out of conviction. However, Ipsus is truly exceptional and I think of it as a kind of child of mine. A characterful wine similar in style to the Mosel Spätlese Rieslings. Intense flavours, wonderful honeyedness and incredible potential for the future. The wine has polished beautifully and is ready to drink. However, I look forward to seeing it take on beautiful diesel notes and gain even more elegance and finesse."
