Details

Geyersberg Riesling Trocken Dreissigacker, Rheinhessen, Organic, ripe, spicy, tropical, mineral dry Riesling. The Geyersberg vineyard is a single vineyard which faces due south, ensuring maximum sun exposure and therefore optimum grape ripeness. Despite a difficult vintage, Jochen Dreissigacker managed to produce wines of high concentration and great fruit quality. The Geyersberg Riesling has notes of pineapple, peach, a suble salinity and spice, with a vein of minerality. This is top quality Riesling made without chaptalisation, organic vinification and some biodynamic methods. Will certainly keep. Worth decanting.

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).
