Riesling Auslese "3 Star" Nackenheimer Rothenberg
BY SPECIAL ORDER. Orders must be recieved by April 19, 2019.
A special bottling at the estate, made only a couple of times in a decade; current vintage is 2014. The 3-Star Auslese (there is no 1-star or 2-star) is spontaneously fermented with natural yeast and allowed to finish on its own with no temperature control or manipulation, thus landing the finished wine at whatever sweetness/dryness level is determined by the conditions of that year. In practice, that’s around 25-30g/l in most years—similar to the Jean-Baptiste Kabinett but of course much richer and more intense. It’s an amazing wine and ages gracefully.
