Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
12.5 %

Notes

The Alte Reben hails from the steepest part of Doosberg, which is surprisingly steep, where the loess and loam soils are shot through with silvery grey quartz. It is fermented and aged in Dopplestuck. The 2018 has the silkiest of textures but is not without freshness, indeed it seems to freshen in the glass. There’s a sweet caress to this, elegance with a certain glamour; a star of the silver screen.

Notes
Zesty lime and strongly pit-inflected white peach are accompanied on the nose by high-toned suggestions of fruit distillate. The glossy, full palate displays pronounced piquancy, including a satisfyingly deep nuttiness. The finish is impressively tenacious, though lacking in the clarity, animation, refreshment and buoyancy that rendered this year’s village-level Oestrich and Hallgarten wines especially impressive (not to mention charming).

Spreitzer

Spreitzer

A magnificent 17 ha estate at Oestrich in the widest part of the Rhine, where sun reflection and humidity are so important. The Spreitzer brothers are a young team that in the last few years has elevated this into one of the Rheingau's great estates. Depending on the wine and the vintage a mixture of wood or steel is used and wild or cultured yeast. Usually the dry wines are fermented in oak and the fruity wines in steel. The main vineyard holdings are the loam and loess soils of the Lenchen and the quartz based Doosberg. The Spreitzer brothers are very active in the vineyard, reducing yield by pruning and green harvesting, and deleafing where necessary to aerate the vines. Hand picking is vitally important here as they do lots of whole cluster pressing. In the cellar there is no pumping of the wines, its all done by gravity. There is usually no fining but a light filtration. Spreitzer make wines that betray full, rich Rheingau characteristics with an almost Mosel precision and energy. A star Estate by any standards.
