2016 Gunderloch Fritz’s Riesling

Rheinhessen, Germany


Winemaker: Johannes Hasselbach
Vineyard/Year: Gunderloch / 2016
Being poured at: European

Gunderloch was the first winery in Germany to put its entire range under screwcap and holds the ‘claim to fame’ of scoring a hat-trick of 100-point reviews in Wine Spectator.

Fritz’s Riesling grows in a very small and special part of Rheinhessen called the Roter Hang, a name meaning “red hill“ due to its red-slate soils. The Roter Hang is located between the village of Nackenheim and the village of Nierstein, 20km south of the city of Mainz. The red colour comes from a high proportion of minerals and iron in the soil. The vineyards are very close to the river Rhine, face south-east and they have steep slopes. The combination of those four factors – the red slate soil, the proximity to the river, the exposure to the sun and the steepness of the vineyards – are perfect for producing wonderful ripeness.

Tasting notes

The wine shows lovely stone fruit, fresh natural acidity, spice and aromatic lift. Dry, fresh and full of character.
