GKF-205

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.

Tasting Notes

This year it’s all quince! We reduced the rs (from 48 to 41 g/l) and now it’s a drink-the-whole-damn-bottle wine, perfectly balanced, no “sugar” to speak of. Just wonderful refreshing complex and balanced. — Terry Theise
