In a nutshell:
An elegant, refined and well balanced, organic dry German Riesling from the Rheinhessen.
Since Jochen Dreissigacker took on this estate from his parents a few years ago things have been really shaken up and he's built an enviable reputation for this wines. The vineyards situated around the village of Bechtheim in the Rheinhessen area are low yielding and they use as little intervention as possible in the winery. For this, their Dry Estate Riesling, the grapes were hand harvested and underwent spontaneous fermentation using wild yeasts. While most of the wine was vinified in stainless steel, 10% did so in barrel. The result is a wine full of ripe fruit aromas of citrus, nectarine and apricot, paired with light spice notes. The palate is delightfully refreshing, with the elegant medium body very well balanced by a crisp acidity and mineral subtones.
When to drink:
With a good balance of power and acidity this is really food friendly - all the way from straightforward pork chops to rich, spicy south east asian cuisine suits it to a tee.
