Munsterer Rheinberg Riesling Kabinett, Kruger-Rumpf
Rheinberg is the steepest of the three GG sites, on weathered quartzite and dusty loam – “similar to Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck,” according to Stefan. It’s flavors are indeed virtually identical, though the Nahe wine has a grace and curvaciousness the more stoic Rheingauer lacks. Sweet apples and yellow fruits are paramount here, though the minerally terroir notes give a firm foundation. These are wines of true charm, not merely winning ways.
Soil type: Quartz
Fermentation: spontaneous in stainless steel
