Region: Nahe
Village: Münster-Sarmsheim
Grape: Riesling
Vineyard: Im Pitterberg Grosse Lage (Grand Cru)

Im Pitterberg

Pitterberg lies in a small convex slope in the upper Nahe Valley in the middle of the Pitterberg vineyard. The south facing site is ensured sufficient sunshine that warms the grey Devon slate and its weathered debris. The soil is highly mineral; very fine loam covers the slate. The soil is well-drained and holds little moisture, which can lead to dryness in summer. Nighty fall winds are diverted by hill. Im Pitterberg is located in the heart of the Pittersberg and is probably the best location for Kruger-Rumpf. The densely planted vineyard (approx. 7,500 vines per hectare) was planted in the 1960s.

Review:
An innovative, modern Kabinett that's genuinely medium-dry, and although this has discreet white-fruit aromas, it's got terrific structure and textural complexity. An excellent food wine, also for very spicy dishes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.
