Details

A blend of three vineyards all close together. Sternberg, Rotenberg, and Kertz. This is in may ways the perfect Nahe wine. With volcanic soil, porphyr, quartz, rhyolite, and gravel, the tremendously variable Nahe soil gets to strut its stuff. Quite dry (1.6 g/l) and with good acid (8 g/l), the wine is pretty dazzling. Fermented in 600 liter neutral wood.

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.
