Name of the wine Riesling Hochheimer Hölle
Vintage 2014
Producer  Weingut Domdechant Werner
Wine Region  Rheingau Germany
Wine classification Kabinett | White Wine
Grape varieties 100% Riesling
Alcohol content 11,5% Vol
Serving temperature 8- 10 Grades
Description After a hectic year with turbulent weather conditions, finally I am delighted to report from Hochheim again about a "happy end” of the 2014 Riesling vintage: Good quality, but smaller quantity. The result is much better than expected: The fresh pressed juice from Riesling tasted and smelled clean with typical fruity aromas, the sugar degree reached over 80° up to 100° Öchsle, mostly suitable for Spätlese and even Auslese. The acidity appears crisp and round, well balanced against the typical Riesling fruits and minerals.

»Riesling pure« is the philosophy of the estate, particularly since Hochheim is credited for the worldwide first documentation of Riesling in history some 550 years ago. The Riesling wines are made rich in extract and due to the high mineral content of the soil both styles are successfully produced: classic-fruity style with overwhelming richness of elegant fruit and spicyness dry style with good substance and a moderate, harmonious acidity. The Pinot Noir is all made in a dry style.

All wines are aged individually in traditional wooden casks. Among the specialties of the estate are full Riesling Spätlese, rich Auslese as well asworld-class BA, TBA and Eiswein with excellent aging potential.

Spätburgunder  Schloss Proschwitz | Saxony Germany

 
Name of the wine Spätburgunder | Pinot Nero
Vintage 2012
Producer Weingut Schloss Proschwitz
Wine Region Saxony | Germany
Wine classification Qba | Red  Wine | Dry
Grape varieties Pinot Nero
Alcohol content 14,% Vol
Description The Pinot Noir displays a bright ruby red colour. The nose shows intense fruit flavours such as wild berries, hints of chocolate and leather notes. Despite being young the Pinot Noir is already displaying great balance and harmony. The berry fruit flavours are reflected on the palate and are also accompanied by a hint of cocoa. The wine shows good minerality that in nicely balanced with ‘soft’ integrated tannins. This Pinot Noir has good aging potential. For an optimal development of aromas, we recommend decanting this wine.
Serving temperature 8- 10 Grades
The red wines Key to the quality of the wines is our decision to avoid high volume yields from the harvest. Our use of ‘green’ ‘sustainable’ and ‘environmentally conscious’ processes in the vineyard, combined with the timely defoliation of the vines enhances the high quality of our product. Our wines develop through open fermentation, partially in oak vats. With must weights that are often well above 100 degrees Oechsle, we are able to produce fascinating base wines which are refined by maturing in barrels for up to 24 months. Even with our cuvées such as „Moritz“ and „Friederike“, we aim at strong bodies and individuality.

The Poggio Rubino estate is located in the area above the hills of Montalcino at an altitude of 470m above sea level, about three kilometres from the town centre and here produces its rare wines. The estate extends over 15ha and the vineyards cover a surface area of 7ha, entirely cultivated with select Sangiovese while the remaining 0.3ha will be planted in Spring 2010.  On average, the vines are ten years old with the exception of the most recent ones planted in 2006 at San Prospero.  The vineyards are positioned in different areas within the territory of Montalcino.  Each individual location and the characteristics of its terrain allow for the attainment of wines with evident personalities accentuating the uniqueness of each individual vineyard.

The most suitable care in cultivation is carried out strictly by hand including the careful selection of canes during pruning and at the moment of the shoot selection along with the thinning of the clusters when the veraison starts.  This enables each single vine to maintain a vegetative balance and an excellent distribution of production, thus ensuring the complete maturation of the bunch. The goal is to produce from 1 to 1.5kg per plant in order to force each individual vine into channelling all its energy into those few clusters and, likewise, imparting to each of them the highest possible sugar and polyphenol concentration.  In turn, this permits the grapes to reach their full potential from an oenological point of view (polyphenols, tannins and anthocyans) even in most difficult growing years.  This type of management allows for both a great limitation in the use and the type of pesticides (in fact, only copper and sulphur are used) and a refusal to use chemical weed control in favour of working the land.  The maximum yield per hectare is 50 to 60 quintals. Directly in farm is possible to taste and buy ours wines Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino and visit all the winery.

Producer Weingut Hermann Dönnhoff
Wine Region Nahe | Germania
Wine classification Qualitätswein | White Wine
Grape varieties 100% Riesling
Alcohol content 11,5% Vol

Dönnhoff’s Riesling QbA is off-dry with 28 gram/litre residual sugar. The fruit largely comes from the pebbly/loam/slate Kieselberg vineyard near Oberhauser. This is pure peach in character, no botrytis, intense lime notes, soft white fruit pulp yet with substance, the residual sugar in perfect balance with the cleansing acidity.
