Details

Somewhat surprisingly, the Nahe often produces terrific Pinot Blanc. This is one of the best. It comes from two vineyards, mostly the Winzenheimer Berg, which supplies the clay and gravel soil that gives the wine a bit of opulence and heft, and the Kupfergrube, which gives the wine elegance and a fine, floral scent. The acid is unusually high for Pinot Blanc, but the balance is superb. The estate recommends this wine with asparagus dishes.

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.
