Details

Riesling Schnait Weingut Knauss, organic, no added sulphur, zippy, fresh, dry, lovely aromatics, classic yet nicely funky. Balanced acidity with a fresh lime twist. Expect hints of pepper, ripe fresh apple and winter spice on the finish. Floral with hints of Blossom and touches of rose. A wine which bounces effortlessly between easy, uncomplicated quaffability and classic Riesling aromatics and complexity. Excellent price for the quality.

Andi Knauss, who now is in his early thirties, started to work together with his father at their family estate in the Remstal region of Wurttemburg, east of Stuttgart in 2004 as the fourth generation wine maker. Vineyard land here is expensive, but Andi has slowly built up the estate parcel-by-parcel, converting to organics after a stint learning the ropes in Austria. Today he makes wines from over a hundred different plots over 15 hectares of vineyards in Strumpfelbach. Terroir is limestone and Marl with altitude up to 400 m above sea level above the river Rems. Wine making is all natural, from yeasts to low sulphur, no fining or filtration.

  1. How good is this wine?

    Ian05/07/2020

    Having had the pleasure of tasting some good Riesling in time over in Germany, this doesn't disappoint at all. Far from it, light and refreshing and comes with a brilliant after taste, i couldn't wait to have another sip. I'm ordering this again i enjoyed it so much and really recommend it if you like a light dry white wine with a really distinctive fruity taste.
