2018 Pettenthal Riesling Grosses Gewächs, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen

Slightly closed but fresh and silky, with lovely energy to the fruit. Very nice energy, here, good weight and power, but with a fine thread of acidity, very silky and pure, really good dry extract, and fine balance. So driven and saline and focussed. Love the phenolics here, incredibly complex and long.

2018 Pettenthal Riesling Grosses Gewächs, 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.
