Dreissigacker Geyersberg Riesling Trocken - Rheinhessen
Bottle size: 750ml
Maximum buy quantity no greater than 3 bottles.
This is the granddaddy of Dreissigacker's dry range in its corpulence, body and texture. It is marked by its fragrant smokiness, like fire- roasted sweet corn. Because the site typically ripens one week earlier than the other sites in Westhofen and Bechtheim, Jochen puts this wine in oak. Yields are reduced to roughly 15hl/ha, what is insanely selective, to ensure a high level of quality.
Appearance: Medium/strong yellow with golden reflexes.
Aroma: Slightly herbal notes, fresh hay.
Palate: Rich spicy notes, elegant, very concentrated. Very long finish.
Perfect food match with roasted veal. Decanting would support the flavour positively.
Jochen Dreissigacker is a young vigneron, fiercely dedicated to giving voice to some of the most exciting vineyard sites of Rheinhessen. After spending a few years working with the iconic Klaus-Peter Keller, Jochen took the reins at his family estate and began the work of converting to Organic viticulture. By focusing on enhancing the vitality of his soils using natural methods, limiting yields, harvesting by hand and vinifying with native yeasts, he captures the individual mineral character of each of his parcels, revealing wines with power and depth without the weight of high alcohol that many of the region’s more famous wines possess.
Dreissigacker is at the forefront of the current ‘Rheinhessen revival’. They are currently producing some of Germany’s most exciting wines, with incredible purity and aromatics. With plans to join the ‘VDP’ group of growers in mind, Dreissigacker has adopted the same pyramid of quality – Estate, Village and Single Vineyard – for the wines. Jochen Dreissigacker is one of the rising stars of the German wine scene and has achieved much critical acclaim both at home and abroad since taking over the running of the family estate in 2005.
His approach in the winery is as non-interventionist as possible, using only wild yeasts, stainless steel vats and obtaining sweetness in the wines by harvesting only fully ripe grapes, rather than by adding ‘süss-reserve‘ after vinification. With a stringent focus on quality, Jochen has converted his 21 hectares of vineyard to biodynamic viticulture (certified since 2010), while yields have been reduced and the best parcels identified in order to vinify each separately. The best vineyard plots include Hasensprung, Geyersberg, Rosengarten, all of which are located within Bechtheim village, where the soils are a mix of loess and marl.
