Kreuznacher Kahlenberg

First mentioned by name in 1499, the history of the Kahlenberg vineyard is a long and venerable one. It has served for generations as the reference site for the former Royal Prussian Institute of Pomology and Viticulture when making official recommendations to winegrowers in our region. Th e slope faces due south, with Riesling vines growing here in a bed of gravelly loam soil that gives their wines an oft-noted spicy character.

Review:
Generous fruit-salad character and floral notes make this the easiest of this producer's dry rieslings to understand and to enjoy right now. Yet, behind the juiciness, the palate has quite a firm structure and the finish is anything but short. From organically grown grapes. Fair'n Green certification. Drink or hold.
