Always a pleasure and always great value for Riesling-lovers, the Jean-Baptiste 2017 is a blend created from the lower terraces of the estate's three top vineyard sites: Nierstein Hipping, Nierstein Pettenthal and Nackenheim Rothenberg (all grand cru sites.) Technically a feinherb style, or "balanced off-dry," with passionfruit, peaches and pink lemonade flavours bursting through its juicy, electric palate, girded by thumping red slate. This is a wine we've used again and again to introduce consumers to the joys of German Riesling.
"This Kabinett is a classical, off-dry Riesling typical for the minerality of the red slate soil. The wine offers harmonious Riesling fruit with a fine acidity and juicy texture. Typical fruity characteristics of yellow flesh stone fruits and long mineral finish of our “Red Slate” vineyards. Named after the founder of the winery “Jean Baptiste” Gunderloch
