Kruger-Rumpf Estate Riesling Trocken '18

We will continue to take the opportunity to tell you to drink Riesling whenever we possibly can! So here we are, reminding you about one of the most impressive and versatile varietals of all time. Not sure what to pair with your meal? Choose Riesling. Not sure what you want to begin your meal with? Choose Riesling. It's time to get on board and explore the depths of Riesling. This month, we are featuring a fresh, dry Riesling.

Kruger-Rumpf's estate is located at the most northern portion of the Nahe, primarily on the steep, west banks of its river. Here, in the village of Münster-Sarmsheim, the vineyards sit in the warmest part of the region, where ripeness is harmonious and frost isn't much of a concern. The disposition of Kruger-Rumpf's location is the driving force behind this all - the Nahe River meets the Rhein River here, and where the intersection of four major German wine regions meet: the Nahe where the winery is located, the Rheingau and Mittelrhein to the north, Rheinhessen to the east. The moderation and balance in climate aids wonderfully to the exposure of the vines here.

This is the winery's flagship bottling, an a great entry point and lesson into the world of Nahe Riesling. It is a blend of two vineyards sites, Kapellenberg and Dautenflänzer, that boast younger vines and exude bright, revitalizing freshness. The soils are full of fresh nutrients and composed of quartz, red slate and loess, adding vibrant tones of minerality to the wine. This is a dry Riesling, with considerable fruit to balance out those high mineral tones, braced by Riesling's signature mouthwatering acidity.
