Weingut Von Winning Pechstein Riesling GG, 2016, Pfalz, Germany
£73.75 (inc VAT)
Unbelievably powerful & delicate at the same time. #VonEpic.
Almost unbelievably powerful yet inexplicably delicate aroma of citrus fruits such as grapefruit and mandarins in harmony with nuances of slate and spices. Almost salty and mineral with a legendary acidity and finish. A classy Riesling, best decanted before serving if you have time.
Humble heroes. From their intriguing (and award-winning) Rieslings to their groundbreaking Pinot Noirs, we love every wine and winemaker from this family-run estate. Founded in 1849 by Dr. Deinhard, developed by his son-in-law Leopold von Winning in 1907, the estate was revived in 2007 by Achim Niederberger, together with the Bassermann-Jordan and von Buhl properties. Tragically Herr Niederberger died in 2013, and his wife Jana now steers the ship. No herbicides, no synthetic fertilisers, no copper, no filtering and no fining. Every bottle is a winner.
