A diamond-bright Spätlese with super-fine peach character and great elegance. The balance of delicate, sweet grapes and filigree, mineral acidity is spot on. Electric freshness at the finish. Where is that sweet-and-spicy pork belly? Drink or hold. Screw cap. 95 Points, Stuart Piggott, jamessuckling.com (09/2018)
The Rothenberg vineyard encompasses around 20 hectares directly on the Rhine River on the north end of the “Roter Hang” between Nackenheim and Nierstein. Around five hectares of this represent the heart of the Rothenberg. The vineyard has a slope of 30 to 80% and is comprised of 290-million-year-old red shale plates. The Hasselbach family of Gunderloch own around 4.5 hectares of this prime vineyard made up predominantly of very steep parcels. The Nackenheimer Rothenberg is without question their most prominent vineyard mountain. It yields wines of striking mineral character paired with a broad spectrum of expressive spice and fruit aromas.
