Details

Geyersberg Bechtheimer Riesling Auslese, Dreissigacker, Rheinhessen 375ml, Organic, luscious, honeyed, concentrated sweet Riesling. The Geyersberg vineyard is a single vineyard which faces due south, ensuring maximum sun exposure and therefore optimum grape ripeness. This dessert wine, made from around 40% botrytised grapes has over 160g/l of residual sugar left from the natural end of the fermentation has concentrated flavours of sweet lemon, honey and exotic fruits. The finish is long and satisfying. Has the capability to age for a long time.

Jochen Dreissigacker has caused a considerable stir both in his native Germany and abroad, winning high praise and points wherever his wines are sold. His 21 hectares of vineyards are based in the Rheinhessen which is currently undergoing what might be termed a ‘Rheinhessen revival’ with Jochen at its forefront. From the 2010 vintage, Jochen‘s wines all have Organic certification and he also uses Biodynamic methods for much of his estate (although has chosen not to be certified). He reduced the yields in the vineyard and identified the best parcels of vines in order to vinify each separately. As expected of an Organic estate, his approach in the cellar is as natural as possible, using only wild yeasts to ferment the must and harvesting only fully ripe grapes (rather than chaptalising, or adding ‘süss-reserve‘ to sweeten the wines after vinification for the Auslese styles).
