Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Spätlese 2015

Prädikatswein, Nahe, Germany

100% Riesling | 8% ABV


We are proud to present this 2015 exuberant spätlese that has all the freshness, fruit, and charm that one expects in a great Riesling. It is sweet and juicy but has notable acidity and minerality which adds incredible lift and poise, creating a wine that carries its fruit to its long finish beautifully.

Winemaker Harald Hexamer and his team are busy all year round to ensure full commitment and dedication to their sustainability practices. One of their main objectives is to convert the vineyards to completely organic. "Winemaking is a path without written recipes, that requires presence and hard work in the vineyard, every day,” says Harald.

A large part of the Meddersheim vineyards are located amongst two valleys, Wingertschied and Eisendell. The terroir here is characterized by the so-called Oberrotlegen, a coarse red sandstone. This superficially weathered, nutrient-poor but skeletal-rich soil - i.e. interspersed with many larger stones - and largely made of quartzite gravels and sands, offers ideal conditions for our favorite grape variety, Riesling.

The fact that particularly delicate, mineral, and fruity wines grow here in Meddersheim's Rheingrafenberg is thanks to the special soil conditions and, in particular, the enormous temperature fluctuations between day and night.

The warm days guarantee a comfortable climate for the vines; The cold air that flows in at night from the high valleys of the Hunsrück prevents the acid from being exhaled too quickly and at the same time promotes slow ripening. The best conditions for perfectly balanced wines that have no fear of comparison when it comes to fruitiness, finesse, and minerality, but also storage potential.

Vinification: The wines are produced from hand-picked bunches that are often harvested quite late. They are then whole-cluster pressed. Sometimes the wines will include some skin contact depending on the quality of the grapes and the type of wine desired. Fermentation starts off with natural yeasts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks though cultural yeasts are often slowly added afterwards to guarantee a smooth fermentation. Fermentation occurs at under 12C and is racked only once. Wines are bottled early to preserve their raciness and freshness.
