“Floral nose, juicy and pure, with some sweetness, balanced by crisp acidity, tangy apple fruit.”

SERVING SUGGESTION
Easy to drink if thirsty for wine – ideal with chicken, turkey, salads, fish and seafood.

TASTING NOTES
Our everyday sip wine is fruity, mineral and well balanced. Typical flavors of ripe fruits, aromatic apples & peaches. Well-structured and delightful as well. In the mouth, the interaction of mouth-watering fruits and minerals are positively shimmering – very delicate and refreshing on the palate.

VINEYARD
The grapes for this wine are sourced from our vineyards in Lorch, Rüdesheim, Hattenheim, Erbach and Eltville. The sites are characterized through slate, quartzite, loess and loam. Outstanding great growing conditions here at the Rheingau combined with an average age of more than 25 years old vines our terroir provides an optimal foundation to produce a great wine.

VINIFICATION
After being gently pressed, the Riesling is fermented and vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel vessels of various sizes. During this process it is most important for us to preserve the terroir until bottling and blending by strictly keeping the different lots separate.

THE ESTATE
When August Kesseler took over his parent’s establishment founded in 1924, he was only 19 years old. Back then, mainly bulk wine was produced and the area covered was not larger than 2,5 ha. Under August Kesseler’s guidance the estate has become one of the flagship ones of the Rheingau area. Down to the present day it has also acquired high international reputation. Today the vineyard estate contains 32.5 ha in some of the best Rheingau sites like: Assmannshäuser Höllenberg, Rüdesheim Berg Schlossberg, Lorchhäuser Seligmacher, Hattenheimer Wisselbrunnen and many more. We produce 60% Riesling and 40% Pinot Noir. We are a member of the VDP and the German Barrique-Forum. Max Himstedt is the estate’s most experienced and ambitious winemaker who pushes forward the production of word class wines. For a couple of years August Kesseler and especially Max Himstedt have been joined by another ambitious and young oenologist: Simon Batarseh. Together with the first two mentioned and the whole team, Simon is going to lead the estate into the future. Thus, the course is set to keep producing quality wines at the highest stage.
