Description

About Grade

Spaetlese stands for the wine made from grapes harvested later than normal in the picking season. Therefore, concentration and maturation shine further with attractive roundness. Its greater body and pleasant sweetness are also another characteristic for the grade.

About Appellation

Rheingau covers the north bank of the Rhein from Lorchhausen to Wiesbaden via Assmannshausen, further stretching into Hochheim located in the north back close to the estuary of the Main. The south-oriented vineyards receiving abundant sunshine produce elegant wine with refined fragrance and unique strong flavor.

Well known as the most wine-producing area in Germany, Rheingau is the major wine appellation. Riesling is predominantly produced for white and so is Spatburgunder for red.

Food Matching
Fruity desserts with a slight sweetness such as an apple pie or matured Manchego cheese, Appenzeller served with fig mustard.
