Gunderloch Riesling Spätlese Nackenheim Rothenberg 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"This juicy white is filled with concentrated flavors of peach cobbler, apple tart and lemon, backed up by refreshing acidity. Features interesting notes of candied basil and honey cream on the finish, with hints of white pepper...93" WS 3/12 "Honeysuckle and orange blossom as well as fresh citrus and smoky crushed stone alluringly scent the Gunderloch 2010 Nackenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Spatlese, which comes to the palate light yet luscious, projecting an orange and lemon sorbet-like impression. Suggestions of Persian melon enhance the sense of abundantly juicy ripeness and a delectably dynamic finishing interplay of fruit and mineral introduces a saliva-inducing, savory salinity that just won’t quit. Here is a terrific example of vintage-typical high acid and extract harnessed in the service of elegance and refreshment...93" WA 12/11 "Candied peach, herbal spices and persimmon on the nose. The rich apricot fruit shows a lush palate feel yet remains taut owing to its crisp texture. Boasts nice weight and good depth but is quite closed today...90" IWC 01/12

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.
