Gunderloch Riesling Auslese Nackenheim Rothenberg 2010
"Spicy and crisp, offering lots of savory herbal notes to the flavors of white peach, Fuji apple and dried apricot. Full and juicy on the finish, with concentrated tropical fruit accents...92" WS 4/12 "Spicy intimations of botrytis along with pungent citrus rind head-turningly scent Gunderloch’s 2010 Nackenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Auslese, whose confectionary yet delicate palate impression suggests marzipan, caramel, and candied orange rind, a drizzling of fresh lemon showing as somewhat detached tartness, though there is no question this finishes with persistent abundance of energy behind its rich flavors...91" WA 12/11
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.
This has both great acid and a nice sweetness that carries through. Very nice! - WS Grand Tour 2011
