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.

Compared to the monster wine of 2007, the 2008 Jean Baptiste is a more classic Kabinett with a touch of sweetness perfectly balanced by cracking acidity. At just 10,5%, it's a perfect allround Riesling for almost any occasion. Goes really well with curry dishes.

Pure, focused nectarine, apricot and grapefruit flavors are matched to vivid acidity and a bright, refreshing finish. Drink now through 2019.

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.
