Certified organic, dry single vineyard Riesling from one of the premium vineyard sites of Rheinhessen. The wine is vinified and aged in 100% stainless steel, but with 20 hours of destemmed maceration and gentle pressing, which imparts a richness of mouthfeel to an aromatic food friendly wine.
Founded in 1833 by pharmacist and inventor Friedrick Koch - the winery has vineyards in some of the highest classified slopes above Oppenheim and Dienheim. This half-dry Riesling is made from old vines located on the boarder between the two towns.
Similar to Grand Cru sites in Burgundy, Grosses Gewächs is a mark of quality; a mark of one of the best producers, from one of the best sites making dry wines. This is a real beauty, super fresh, a nice spiciness, slightly salty and a steely acidity.
