93 Points, Wine Spectator”Dogma isn’t our thing” is the motto of Gut Hermannsberg. In the vineyard, they consider the ecosystem with every move they make, mindful that it is the key ingredient to the unique quality of their wines. In the cellar, the team likes to step back from the winemaking process letting time take care of the important things.Riesling is the great love at Gut Hermannsberg and the wines are treated with the utmost respect. Vines are cultivated to reflect the terroir in which they are grown, producing pure, three-dimensional wines with personality. Gut Hermannsberg produces 150,000 bottles annually. Riesling covers 95% while Weissburgunder covers the remainder.We love the unique beauty of the monopoly vineyard “Hermannsberg” which lies right in front of our manor house. The 2016 “Hermannsberg” presents a bouquet of orange zest-, quince- and light yeasty flavors. The clay slate differentiates this vineyard from all the other neighboring, expressive vineyards that usually consist of volcanic rock offering a subtle elegance and precision. The mouthwatering taste of ripe stone fruits, limes and wild herbs is in great balance with a well embedded, racy acidity. A dry, citric finish with light tannins. This wine has a great aging potential.The “Hermannsberg” is the only one out of the 7 VDP.Grosse Lage/ Grand Cru vineyard sites with a clay- slate bedrock. This is the source of the elegance and delicate minerality of the “Hermannsberg”-wines. A layer of loess, a wind born sediment, on top of the slate gives the wines their richness.Veal or Poultry Liver with sage and mashed potatoes is a great match with this wine. Dishes cooked with a variation of herbs and powerful spiciness like grilled seabream served with a creamy Risotto.Bottle750ml, CorkVarietalRieslingAlcohol 12.5%Region Nahe, Germany
