Description

In 2018, the Rings brothers pressed the Riesling Kreid for the first time, which is intended as a homage to their father. It comes from a prime piece of the Saumagen, the old "Kreidkeller" vineyard. The vines, which are over 30 years old, stand on white limestone with ferruginous red earth in the subsoil directly next to the forest with a cool microclimate. Riesling, puristic and bone dry, just as the Rings' father liked it. A big, complex and concentrated wine that still needs some time or wants to be caraffed: strong structure, tight palate, delicate creaminess (ageing on the full lees), a little smoky, some white peach and yellow stone fruit, white pepper and blackcurrants, herbal-citric- mineral, cool, maritime character. You can literally feel the terroir on the tongue. Smallest production, very limited availability. Robert Parker / The Wine Advocate / Stephan Reinhardt write about it: "Tasted as a sample in April 2020, the 2019 Riesling Trocken Kreid (from the iron-rich Kreidkeller plot of the Kallstadter Saumagen) is very fine and complex on the perfectly ripe and elegant nose. On the palate, this is a round, mouth-filling, silky-textured yet nervous, chalky and highly finessed dry Riesling with great intensity, balance and remarkable distinction. The finish is crystalline, incredibly refined and salty, full of tension and weightlessness. This is a spectacular and promising wine. Made only for the second time after the 2018 firstling."

Pfalz: Riesling meets Burgundy

Palatine winemakers manage the feat of vinifying top-tier crus from both white and red varieties. In addition, Riesling presents the same class here as Chardonnay and other Burgundy varieties. This versatility at high quality levels makes Germany’s second-largest wine region a trove of discoveries of all kinds. Tranquil winegrowing towns with a diverse range of culinary offerings and hotels make the Palatinate region a perfect wine travel destination.

Germany – Into the elite the hard way

Sitting in the heart of Europe, the hilly, lake-dotted landscape of Germany provides ideal, fertile soil for the most diverse vine varieties. From Albalonga to Zweigelt, over 140 different grape varieties are grown on about 100,000 acres, cared for by nearly 50,000 vintners. Most of these vintners are young, modern, internationally trained, inquisitive and urbane. It is hardly surprising, then, that German wine has a good reputation well beyond the country's borders.
