2016 Hattenheimer Schützenhaus
Riesling trocken (dry)
Alc: 12,5 %Vol., Rs: 5,9 g/l, Acidity: 7,4 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 three winner vintages 2013, 2014 and 2015 awarded by Mundus Vini as “Best dry Riesling”. Classic dry, expressive Rheingau Riesling with strenght and opulence.
Alc: 12,5 % Vol., Rs: 5,1 g/l, Acidity: 8,4 g/l
Juicy, animating, complex.
Alc: 12,5 %Vol., Rs: 7,8g/l, Acidity: 8,8g/l
The Oestricher Klosterberg, situated near the edge of the forest, grows under the influence of cool microclimate because of the higher position away from the Rhein river. This Riesling fascinates with very clear, soft exotic fruit with elegance.
Alc: 12,0 %Vol., Rs: 13,3 g/l, Acidity: 7,1 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.
