Dr. Nagler Rudesheimer Berg Roseneck Riesling Beerenauslese 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The Nägler family have owned vineyards in the Rüdesheimer Berg area in the heart of the Rheingau region since 1826. Berg Roseneck is the steepest location of the Rüdesheimer Berg: Superior, elegant and well-balanced wines mature on the steep quartz and slate soil. This value-priced Beerenauslese shows ripe peach, rich, opulent fruit with only hints of botrytis, complexity, acidity and minerality all rolled together.

In Rüdesheim, the heart of the Rheingau, the Rhine River at its opening to the north has cultivated one of Germany's best vineyards. Protected against the cold of north and west, the steep southern hills of the Rüdesheimer Berg together with the Rhine build a natural concave mirror towards the sun. The direct neighbourhood of the light-reflecting and heat-accumulating Rhine River produces a maximum of light and heat, which make the snow melt early and guarantee a long maturing process of the grapes. The Riesling finds its best growing conditions on these dry, rocky southern hills. It is not a very fruit-bearing grape vine type. The cluster is small, densely covered with grapes and it ripens late. During the extensive growing period the fruit is being built and acid refinement takes place, both of which are characteristic of stimulating liveliness and freshness of Quality and Cabinet Wines. The autumnal morning mists of the nearby Rhine support the noble putrefaction, which represents the characteristic of the most elegant, aromatic „Spätlesen" (wine made from late-gathered grapes) and superior „Auslesen" (wine made from choicest grapes). Therefore, the quality of the „Rüdesheimer Riesling" not only depends on must degree, but mainly on acid, the elegance of which is being cultivated by the easily warming rocky soil. Read less
