2009 NACKENHEIM ROTHENBERG AUSLESE GOLDKAPSEL, Gunderloch. Rheinhessen, Germany (Half Bottle)

Bin:  914

Alcohol percentage:  9.5%


Rheinhessen is the part of the river Rhine responsible for much of the rubbish that ruined Germany’s wine reputation over the last 30 years. The best wines, however, have always remained outstanding, with a riper, softer style than that of the Mosel or Rheingau

Grape variety:

100% Riesling from heavily ‘botrytis’ affected grapes


Gunderloch, run by Fritz Hasselbach, are an outstanding producer based in Nackenheim. Rothenberg (named after its red slate soil) is one of the best vineyard sites on the Rhine, and most of it is owned by Gunderloch

Maturity potential:


Old Bridge rating:

No, it’s not expensive, really not expensive at all for the quality – thrillingly rich but lively

Food match:

Delicate, but luscious enough to cope with fruit-based desserts
