Schloss Reinhartshausen 2022 Marcobrunn Riesling Grand Cru dry

Schloss Reinhartshausen 2022 Marcobrunn Riesling Grand Cru dry

Regular price £52.70

The Grand Cru site where the grapes that produce this Riesling are grown is amongst the best in the world. For the cellar masters of Schloss Reinhartshausen it is both an honour and a pleasure to be able to accompany these benchmark sites.

The Marcobrunn site is a slightly sloping southern site within boundaries of Erbach. Its name dates back to the 13th century and stems from a spring on the border between Erbach and Hattenheim. The vine area which is only 6.7ha, grows only Riesling. Heavy loess loam and chalky marl soil with sand ensures a prefect nutrient supply and regulates the water levels during the dry periods.

The grapes for the Marcobrunn are gently presses by horizontal wooden presses, which involves intense manual labour.

This Riesling is still a bit closed but already offering hints of unique terroir character of the Marcobrunn, with a typical roasted hazelnuts and creme brulee developing while it ripes. If the wine is to be drunk young, the wine needs a lot of airing, decant it 45 minutes before serving. To make sure thet the wine shows it's full bouquet. Drink it from big glasses at 12 Celcius. It is a wine with great potential, develping positively over many years to come.
