Details

The base wine for this sparkling Riesling is made entirely with ripe fruit from our VDP-classified “Grosse Lagen” vineyards in Niederhausen, Schlossböckelheim and Altenbamberg. The rich diversity of the vineyard lends this sparkling wine a sophisticated yet playful nose, with a distinctive minerality typical for the Riesling fruit from the region. This sparkling Riesling marries creamy charm, marked minerality, and supple, sophisticated fruit into a single, unforgettable wine. Elegant aromas of citrus and apple finesse lead into a complex range of tropical fruit flavors from mango to papaya, with a long, lingering finish. The marriage of fresh fruits and racy acidity make this a wine to remember. We recommend serving not only as an aperitif, but as a sparkling star within a multi-course menu — perhaps with fish, risotto, or pork tenderloin with a delicate sauce and young vegetables.

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.
