Details

This wine is a blend of five different vineyards, including the top ones. Some are young vines. The wine shows off the amazingly complex Nahe soil: Lemberg Porphyry, Metaphyre, slate, and terrace gravel. Plus quartz, copper, Iron and schist; in short, it is a geologist's paradise, and a wine lover's as well. The wine is more more open and juicy already, but will probably age for a few years too.

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.
