2015 Hattenheimer Schützenhaus
Riesling trocken (dry)
Alc: 13,5 %Vol., Rs: 5,0 g/l, Acidity: 8,6 g/l
This Riesling comes from the heart of the Schützenhaus site, a vineyard in which grapes ripen earlier than elsewhere and yields small, loose clusters of berries. A true model of a traditional, dry Rheingau Riesling. A worthy successor of the two winner vintages 2013 and 2014, awarded by Mundus Vini as “Best dry Riesling”. Classic dry, expressive Rheingau Riesling with strenght and opulence.
Alc: 14,0% Vol., Rs: 1,6 g/l, Acidity: 5,7 g/l
One of our best sites for Pinot Noir. Highly complexe nose, deep and full-bodied, elegant and spicy this prime wine presents itself. Only very small harvest build the basis for this concentrated Pinot Noir.
Alc: 8,5 %Vol., Rs: 247g/l, Acidity: 9,4g/l
This is Riesling at its finest. At the 2013 International Riesling Challenge in Canberra, it was named the “Best Riesling of the World.” It shows the ultimate potential of a lusciously sweet Riesling. Full-bodied, with a balanced acidity structure that lends it freshness. Tremendous longevity: a wine that will keep for a century or longer.
Alc: 11,5 %Vol., Rs: 15g/l, Acidity: 8,7g/l
A high-caliber, off-dry wine that is truly a pleasure to drink. Very complex Riesling aromas with lots of fruit underpinned by mineral notes. A big, mouth-filling wine that enables it to go very well with food..
Alc: 11,5 %Vol., Rs: 13,8 g/l, Acidity: 9,1 g/l
Our customers’ favorite wine. Off-dry and low in alcohol, it shows a graceful, balanced play of sweetness and acidity. A wine for nearly all occasions. It goes especially well with Asian cuisine.
