Rieslings – biodynamic – Rheingau terroir at its best
Peter Jakob Kuhn
A winery that is fast becoming a true German icon thanks to their electrifying examples of Riesling! The Kühn estate was founded in 1786 by Jacobus Kühn and has remained under the watchful eye of his family ever since. Now, along with his wife Angela, and their son Peter Bernhard, Peter Jakob Kühn cultivates the family land biodynamically, producing a range of Rieslings which showcase the Rheingau terroir. A fervent believer in the ecological benefits of biodynamic farming, Peter is at present, the only producer to follow biodynamic principles in the Rheingau. His wines are made in a fearless manner, with as much as possible left to nature’s own course. His experimental cuvées include wines which have undergone extra-long lees ageing or been fermented and aged in amphora vessels.
Hallgarten Riesling Alte Reben VDP. Ortswein 2021
A fantastic Riesling from Rheingau's trailblazer. A compact, mineral and profound wine that beguiles with aromas of apple, orange, orange zest and countless herbs. On the palate, it literally grabs hold with its minerality and power. Ripe fruit and juicy structure, lively acidity and a long finish.
