Rheinhessen: Staatliche Weinbaudomäne Oppenheim Riesling 2013

Germany is the spiritual home of the Riesling grape variety which, like Pinot Noir, flourishes in the cooler climate. This is a textbook example - lime leaf aromas backed by a whistle-clean, mineral-edged palate of orchard fruit.

Tasting Notes
This classic Riesling comes from the Roter Hang (red slope), a south facing 'sweet spot' of mineral-rich red slate in the centre of the Rheinterrasse.

The Rheinhessen is the largest of Germany's 13 quality wine producing regions with around 25,000 hectares under vine, 70% of which produces white wine. Bordered by the Rhine river to the East and North and the Nahe river in the West, the soil types are varied and the undulating terrain supports mixed farming alongside viticulture.

Staatliche Weinbaudomäne Oppenheim

Founded in 1895 by Ernst Ludwig, the Grand duke of Hesse and Rhine, this winery owns 23 hectares of prime vineyards along the Rhine, planted with Riesling, Silvaner and Spätburgunder. The estate is a member of the Association of German Quality and Prädikat Wine Estates – a rollcall of the top 200 wineries in the country – allowing it to use the rather ominous-looking eagle on its bottles!
