"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 quality of this dry Riesling is the link between Gut Hermannsberg’s VDP .Ortsweine and VDP .GrosseGewächse. The base for this vineyard blend derives from the steep slope Grand Cru vineyard “RosselNiederhausen”. The main aromas of this Riesling are Amalfi-lemon and wild herbs, and its elegant structure and complexity are captivating. This “2020 Steinterassen Riesling” is an astonishing elegant dry wine which is just starting to show its full potential.
Due to this special microclimate in the “Rossel Niederhausen” you will find an extraordinary quality of grapes. Our “Steinberg Niederhausen” has a barren ground with volcanic origin. The rhyolite soils from the time of the “Rotliegenden” have a high amount of iron giving the “Rotenberg Altenbamberg” its name. This wine is as diverse as the soils.
A great food pairing for the "2020 Riesling Steinterrassen" is red meat, like Entrecote or Roast beef. Accompanied by grilled Vegetables and a creamy Risotto.
