Details

Niederhäuser Hermannsberg is the estate's monopole vineyard. The grapes are painstakingly hand-selected and then processed as gently as possibly, resulting in an exceedingly complex and multi-layered wine. Soil: The substratum of argillaceous slate soils in the south-facing and sunny Niederhäuser Hermannsberg dates from the Pleistocene epoch and is covered with wind-blown loess deposits. Over one hundred years ago, melaphyre was introduced to the site as a result of mining. Grapes grown in the Hermannsberg yield distinctive wines, characterised by multilayered aromatic profiles. Description: The longer the wine stays in the glass, the more intense and tantalising the fragrance becomes. On the palate the wine shows itself powerful and full-bodied with a finely structured acidity. Initially smoky and cool, the wine is surprising for its rich and minty freshness, bright peach and white pepper notes. A fascinating wine with a robust structure, which can be cellared almost indefinitely.

Region

Nahe


Nahe is an official wine-region in Germany, but has been classified only since 1971.

Before that, it was a source for mainly undistinguished "Rhine Wine."

Part of the state Rheinland-Pfalz, its wine-villages and towns are laid out along both sides of the Nahe river, which flows into the Rhine at Bingen.

There are currently more than 10,000 acres under vines, in which 75% of the vines grow white grapes, with Riesling the predominate variety.

The volcanic nature of its geography has led to a marvelous variety of soil-types porphyry, slate and sandstone sometimes occurring within the same vineyard site.

Subregion

Upper Nahe


Characterized by a striking diversity of soils including slate, sandstone, laphyre and porphyry, and progressively higher temperatures as you move downstream, the Upper Nahe features some of the most spectacular vineyard sites, like the Bastei or the Rotenfels.
