Gunderloch Nackenheim Rothenberg Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese 2004 375ml
The Rothenberg Vineyard encompasses around 20 hectares directly on the Rhine River on the north end of the “Roter Hang” between Nackenheim and Nierstein. Around five hectares of this represent the heart of the Rothenberg. The vineyard has a slope of 30 to 80% and comprises 290-million-year-old red shale plates. The Hasselbach family of Gunderloch own around 4.5 hectares of this prime vineyard made up predominantly of very steep parcels. The Nackenheimer Rothenberg is without question their most prominent vineyard mountain. It yields wines of striking mineral character paired with a broad spectrum of expressive spice and fruit aromas.
Wine Spectator – Incredible unctuousness, while the aroma signals wet earth and mineral notes. Silky-smooth, it remains light on the palate, leaving the essence of apricot, honey and spice flavors, which fade gracefully on the long finish. Drink now through 2050.
Jancis Robinson – Great concentration of botrytis on the nose, there's some BA and TBA fruit in here. Toffee apple, honey, orange and grapefruit set a frame of complexity. A rich oily texture is offset by faint notions of acidity and Mandarin Napoleon orange bitterness. Luscious and generous.
