Munsterer Rheinberg Riesling Kabinett, Kruger-Rumpf
The Rheinberg kabinett comes entirely from the quartz dominated higher sections of the Rheinberg hill, facing south east. Vines are around 25 years old with much of the vineyard planted in the 1990s. Harvested in the beginning of October at 70 hectoliters per hectare, the vines in Rheinberg were framed without chemical fertilizers or herbicides. Grapes are harvested, crushed directly and fermented half in Hösch stuckfass and half in stainless steel. Fermentation is natural with no added cultured yeast. The wine is racked into stainless steel and cooled to stop fermentation, in late April, and bottled in the beginning of May.
