Kallstadter Riesling Trocken, Koehler-Ruprecht
Koehler-Ruprecht started to produce dry Rieslings back when they weren't on the trendy radar. Since 2011 the winery has been managed by Dominik Sona with the help of cellar master Franziska Schmitt. Known for their three site - the rugged 750-yr-old Steinacker, the more pristine and limestone 120-year-old Annaberg, and the legendary 200+year-old Saumagen.
The estate is known for its rich Rieslings that are bought to life through hard work and old school winemaking. Featuring both the pradikät and the trocken designation on each wine, that the VDP no longer allows and was one of the reasons for leaving consortium.
Viticulture & Winemaking Sustainable. Grapes are hand harvested and go through a Indigenous yeast fermentation in stainless steel and bottled with no additions.
Region Pfalz, Germany
Tasting Notes The intro wine into Koehler-Ruprecht Rieslings and a great place to start. Delicate honey crisp apples and pears that work alongside the crisp acidity which round off to a bone dry finish.
