Gunderloch Riesling Auslese Nackenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Rheinhessen 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The flavour of this fine wine is due to its location, the steepest terrace of our red slope. Great complexity, distinctive flavour, reminding of tropical fruits, in connection with sweetness, acidity and a fine minerality. We recommend this wine with salty cheeses, blue cheese and light sweet desserts.

Gunderloch:
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.

The Gunderloch 2008 Nackenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Auslese represents a November harvest after which no further nobly sweet wine was brought in until February and then with T.B.A.-level must weights. Like this year s Spatlese this Auslese is strongly marked by its spontaneous fermentation but behind that are seemingly equal proportions of quince pear and peach preserves allied to green tea and sweet lily- and peony-like perfume that follow all the way through to a sensationally long unctuous finish. In contrast with the corresponding Spatlese though this preserves a vivacious fresh orange brightness and its acidity and extract manage to keep the impression of sweetness from pushing quite so far toward the limit even though impressions of marzipan and honey are definitely part of its finish. Agnes Hasselbach maintains that it needs until early 2010 to really reveal its personality. Perhaps but I m convinced already and would anticipate its being worth following for 25-30 years.
