"Dogma isn't our thing" is the motto of Gut Hermannsberg. In the vineyard, they consider the ecosystem with every move they make, mindful that it is the key ingredient to the unique quality of their wines. In the cellar, the team likes to step back from the winemaking process letting time take care of the important things.
Riesling is the great love at Gut Hermannsberg and the wines are treated with the utmost respect. Vines are cultivated to reflect the terroir in which they are grown, producing pure, three-dimensional wines with personality. Gut Hermannsberg produces 150,000 bottles annually. Riesling covers 95% while Weissburgunder covers the remainder.
The "7 Terroirs" is made 100% out of Gut Hermannsberg 7 VDP.GrosseLagen, which are vinified separately in the cellar and blended afterwards. This spontaneously fermented Riesling cannot deny its making. The complex herbal and smokey-mineral aromas are compelling and can be tasted right after the first sip. On the palate, this wine presents citrus and stone fruit aromas and convinces with its powerful taste and its elegance.
The grapes for this wine originate from Gut Hermannsberg seven single vineyards which are all classified as VDP.GrosseLagen by the VDP. The diverse microclimates and soil conditions of our vineyards are all combined in this Riesling. The conditions of the vineyards are determined by steep and stinted slopes and the nearby Nahe- River, with its narrow valley.
The "7 Terroirs" is a universal food companion and works well with grilled, roasted, or baked goods. We love to pair this wine with an Avocado-Salad and grilled prawns.
