Kallstadter Saumagen Riesling Auslese Trocken 'R', 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 Biodynamic farming. 2009 Vintage.
Region Pfalz, Germany
Tasting Notes Fantastic nose of ginger, corn, and perfumed floral character with riper baked pear and apple. Spice and fruit on the palate, will still plenty to go. Drink now or lay for another 5years.
