We are preparing some rows for an eventual 2018 Eiswein in our Oestricher LENCHEN.
The last time we have picked Eiswein was in 2004. We don‘t know if it will be getting cold enough, but if so, we want to be ready. The beautiful and healthy Riesling grapes are promising to be quite stable for a while. Let‘s keep on playing!
Three wines in the Top-5 of Germanies dry Rieslings of the year!
The magazine WeinWisser rates 2015 "GGs" DOOSBERG (19,5P.) and SANKT NIKOLAUS (19P.) as the two best GGs in the Rheingau. Thank you! "A new benchmark" are 2015 Schlehdorn (19,5P. "monumental") and Landgeflecht (19,5P.). Both wines were presented to the public after three years of aging for the first time in September.
Breakfast break during our 1st Passage in Doosberg Grand Cru today. We pick only the third grape of each branch. The remaining grapes are looking perfect. The team has grown a bit since harvest started end August. On Thursday we will be complete.
The most influential and popular German weinguide, the Gault & Millau presents its latest version for 2017. Peter Jakob Kühn receives for the first time the top rating in the German "wine-bible": five out of five grapes. There are only 13 five-grapes-wineries in Germany and only 2 in the entire Rheingau.
