200 years of grape growing have given these committed organic farmers a wealth of vineyards to work. Humble beginnings have lead them on a steady march towards pure, terroir driven wines in their little corner of the Nahe. As friends and neighbors of Dönnhoff, they knew they had to find their own place in hearts of Riesling lovers, and so focused their attention on value, good wines at great prices.

What importer Skurnik Wines has to say about this wine...

Village: Münster-Sarmsheim
Grape: Riesling
Vineyard: Im Pitterberg Grosse Lage (Grand Cru)
Soil: phyllit (slate)
Production:The grapes for this wine were gently pressed for over ten hours and then spontaneously fermented in an old piece barrel (1,200l wooden barrel). Fermentation is stopped by racking from barrel to barrel.

Im Pitterberg

Pitterberg lies in a small convex slope in the upper Nahe Valley in the middle of the Pitterberg vineyard. The south facing site is ensured sufficient sunshine that warms the grey Devon slate and its weathered debris. The soil is highly mineral; very fine loam covers the slate. The soil is well-drained and holds little moisture, which can lead to dryness in summer. Nighty fall winds are diverted by hill. Im Pitterberg is located in the heart of the Pittersberg and is probably the best location for Kruger-Rumpf. The densely planted vineyard (approx. 7,500 vines per hectare) was planted in the 1960s.

Excellent. Of the first five of the twelve Rieslings in the order, this was the best. However, we are drinking in an expected ascending order of even better, so we still have a good seven to go.
