Munsterer Dautenpflanzer Riesling Spatlese, Kruger-Rumpf
Münsterer Dautenpflänzer is composed of slate and sandy loam and is one of Kruger-Rumpf’s top sites. Multi-faceted and complex, this GG site is one of the leading Grand Crus of the lower Nahe, with a typical mélange of soil types within its borders.
Seems like a lotta Spätlese but you couldn‘t have left any behind; this has a wonderful intricate nose of slate and exotica; very high toned (the pH is 2.95!); the palate has almost brash high-notes, but lovely rich mid-range notes of pulverized mineral and murmury low notes of pear syrup. About as fine an expression of German Riesling as a man and his dog can score.

Press & Reviews
Rumpf’s 2004 Munsterer Dautenpflanzer Riesling Spatlese smells of pineapple, pear and white peach, following with a delicate and refined palate impression saturated with a sense of liquid slate and pure pear, peach and pineapple fruit. The finish is smooth and long with generous fruit augmented by subtle spice and crushed stone. Classic 2004 virtues are on display. (David Schildknecht)
