Wine Review Report :

Wein-Plus rating: Excellent (91 WP)
Last reviewed: 30 October 2019
Editor note: Firm nose, still clearly reductive, light floral and herbaceous notes, restrained yellow fruit aromas, mineral notes in the background, floral notes, touch of dark berries. Very light, sweetish, partly preserved fruit on the palate, lively, fairly elegant acidity, light tannic grip, herbaceous and floral traces, touch of sugar candy, prominent yeasty notes, some acid bite and some depth, becomes more firm with aeration, intense mineral notes, clear contours, very good, firm, gripping finish. Definitely needs time to mature.
Best to drink: 2024-2030+

The growing area is located in the country Rheinland-Pfalz in Germany and is named after the river of the same name. There are many preserved testimonies of the Romans who already cultivated wine here. The vineyards cover i4.237 hectares of vines along the river from Hunsrück to its mouth in the Rhine at Bingen. Near Bingen founded the Benedictine abbess Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) the monastery Rupertsberg. The soils consist of quartzite and schist at the lower Nahe, porphyry, melaphyr and Buntsandstein at the middle Nahe as well as weathered soils, sandstone, loess and loam near Bad Kreuznach.
