Gunderloch Riesling Rothenberg Grosses Gewachs 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

94-95 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): Can the 2015 Nackenheim Rothenberg Riesling trocken GG top the excellent Nackenheim '1er Cru'? Wow, it can! This wine is very clear, precise and very deep on the stony and smoky--or rather flinty--nose. There are ripe stone fruit aromas that come along as more discreet and spicy, with crushed slate notes. On the palate, the minerals buffer the lively acidity and give an almost mealy, round and silky texture. This is a noble wine with a stimulatingly salty and vibrating finish. If you don't want to miss one of the greatest wines made from the red slope in 2015, then this is surely a wine to buy. Drink: 2017-2030. (6/20/16)

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.
