2021 Gunderloch ‘Rothenberg’ Grosses Gewächs Riesling


Rheinhessen, Germany

The Rothenberg vineyard encompasses about 20 hectares directly on the Rhine River on the north end of the “Roter Hang” between Nackenheim and Nierstein. Around five hectares of this comprise the heart of the Rothenberg. The vineyard has a slope of 30 to 80% and
comprises 290-million-year-old red shale plates. The Hasselbach family of Gunderloch Estate own around 4.5 hectares of this prime vineyard made up predominantly of very steep parcels. The Nackenheimer Rothenberg is without question their most prominent vineyard. It yields wines of striking mineral character paired with a broad spectrum of expressive spice and fruit aromas. - Importer note


“Gunderloch’s 2021 Rothenberg Riesling trocken GG shows a coolish, more flinty, herbal and remote nose next to the Pettenthal and is perhaps the more aristocratic Riesling, with yeasty and oaky notes that are super discreet but give a textural richness that softens the first impressions a bit. In fact, the palate is generous, textured and very elegant, with ripe, lush and elegant fruit and a very long, saline and crystalline finish. 12.5% stated alcohol. Screw-cap closure. Tasted at the domaine in August 2022.” 95 Points. Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate
