Gut Hermannsberg Niederhauser Riesling 2013

Entirely from the great Herrmannsberg vineyard, a touch more forward than the Schlossböckelheimer, this is nonetheless an almost salty Riesling. Irresistible.

Wine with character. Notes of wild springtime herbs and grapefruit reflect the sophisticated characteristics of the Niederhauser vineyard with grapes harvested entirely from the Grosse Lage Hermannsberg vineyard. Lime and crisp stone fruit wash across the palate with a silken finesse, culminating in a full, balanced finish. Clarity and precision define this wine, inevitably leaving you wanting more- perhaps a finely cooked meal to accompany it, or perhaps simply a second glass. Try with subtlety spiced dishes to flatter the wine‘s radiant minerality and delicate, integrated fruit. We suggest a roasted corn-fed chicken with sautéed vegetables or a Viennese-style Tafelspitz.

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.
