Pittermannchen Riesling Grosses Gewachs, Schlossgut Diel
Schlossgut Diel owns 2,5 acres (1 ha)
of this prestigious site, making it the smallest member in the exclusive circle of top vineyards of the estate. The name dates back to the 16th century when a Pittermännchen was a small silver coin and implies that the wines made here were significant in value. The soil of the southward aligned site consists of slate with a lots of quartzite and gravel.
Pungently slatey; ostensibly lighter but curiously lingering and stubborn; a wine of twigs and shoots and small bones, Riesling with no concessions; intricate trigonometry of gravelly mineral, lacy hoar-frost tracings of delicate little threads of Riesling love. — Terry Theise
