2012 Jean Baptiste Riesling Kabinett, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen

Weingut Gunderloch's strapline for their information sheet on the 2012 vintage couldn't be clearer: "2012: Long-tough-perfect!". A case in point is this Cuvée Jean-Baptiste, the most impressive wine of the tasting. The nose is dominated by acacia and elderflower and the palate beautifully expressive and poised, with a great mineral acidity on the finish. This is absolutely gorgeous!

2012 Jean Baptiste Riesling Kabinett, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen
Weingut Gunderloch

Johannes Hasselbach took over the family domaine (which bears the name of its 1890 founder, Carl Gunderloch) a few years ago, with his father Fritz moving into the background, but remaining ever-present to help his son. This sixth generation winemaker has had sole responsibility since Fritz sadly passed away in December 2016, so 2017 is Johannes’ first vintage flying solo. And he’s produced a remarkable range of wines in their smart corner of Gunderloch. Sharing many plots with the famous Weingut Keller, whose wines sell for many times the price, Gunderloch offers access to this great terroir, without the price tag.
