2018 Nierstein Riesling Dry, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen

2018 Nierstein Riesling Dry, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen

Nicely floral and citrus on the nose, with plenty of elegance and finesse, and a good sense of balance to the nose. Nice orange blossom fruit, and plenty of mineral tang, with spice and sea spray on the palate. Really lovely dry extract, and excellent length and minerality on the finish. Really like the length and finesse, here. 100% Pettenthal fruit, from the GG site.

2022 Nierstein Riesling Dry, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen Dry | White | Still | 12.5%

Johannes has been running the family estate for 10 years, which has grown from 8 to 30 hectares and converted to organic viticulture since his arrival. Nierstein fruit comes from young vines from the famous and highly regarded Pettenthal vineyard that overlooks the Rhine river. The 2022 vintage is a warm vintage and the profile is more juicy and hints of exotic fruits combined with blossom and herbal notes as well as refreshing acidity and fruit purity.

 
2021 Rothenberg Riesling Grosses Gewächs, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen Dry | White | Still | 12.5%

At 5.5 hectares, the site retains the warmth and the orange and fleshy peach aroma is a nod to this heat retaining site. The wine has a breadth and a concentration, yet there is a herbal note as well as a saltiness and energy that is characteristic of the vintage.

Ready: 2023 - 2040
2021 Pettenthal Riesling Grosses Gewächs, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen Dry | White | Still | 13%

At 6.5 hectares, this is Gunderloch's largest site and is probably its most prestigious. The gravelly red slate and cooler site provides a delicate finesse and lively acidity. Steely in its approach with jasmine and white grapefruit pithiness. This is a classy wine.

Ready: 2023 - 2040
