Herbs, spice and steely flint. Few wines can match the complexity of Schlossböckelheimer. The journey begins in the nose with the bite of orange peel and hints of passion fruit. The palate then explodes in a show of concentration and depth, powerful yet balanced with sophisticated charm. The wine finishes with a fine saltiness to compliment the intensely lush fruit. We recommend serving this powerhouse with richly spiced dishes: hearty meat stews, curries, oven roasted fish and white meats. Also recommended are smoked and grilled dishes, root vegetables and legumes.

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.
