Gunderloch Jean Baptiste Riesling Kabinett Nackenheim 2009
An off dry, Kabinett level wine. Excellent acidity keeps it in balance, and even gives it notes of limes and quince. There is some nice smokey, oily-ness to the wine and this then fades to a nice tart finish. Very nice.Add winemaker's notes
Our great - great grandfather, Carl Gunderloch, a banker from Mainz, founded the Gunderloch estate in 1890. He bought excellent grand cru vineyard sites, NACKENHEIM ROTHENBERG, and became one of the pioneers of quality wine making on the Rhine River. Agnes and Fritz Hasselbach have been managing the 30 acres of vineyards in Nackenheim and Nierstein since 1979 and are the fifth generation owners.

External Reviews for Gunderloch Jean Baptiste Riesling Kabinett Nackenheim
Fritz Hasselbach, owner of Weingut Gunderloch, is not only one of the premier producers of the Rheinhessen, he's also incredibly dedicated to making wines of terroir. The red, iron-rich soils show through on the palate. Off-dry on the palate, full of peaches and yellow plums.
Though this has richness and balance, the flavors could be more vivid and focused. Light peach and apple flavors show moderate length. Drink now through 2012.
Big for a kabinett, yet round and juicy, with a vibrant cast to its peach and mineral flavors. Picks up a spicy note on the finish. Drink now through 2005.
Pure, focused nectarine, apricot and grapefruit flavors are matched to vivid acidity and a bright, refreshing finish. Drink now through 2019.
