Description

Situated in the historic Rheingau on the right banks of the river Rhine, the Kühn Estate has been a cornerstone of German wine-making for roughly 230 years and has been passed down through 11 generations. Having grown into a 20 hectare estate, Peter Bernhard along with his wife Viktoria, his parents Peter Jakob and Angela, as well as his sister Sandra continue to both preserve the established traditions of their ancestors and to pursue modern viticultural techniques. In 2004 they made the decision to achieve a certification as organic and biodynamic winery. The belief and expectation of quality wine manifests itself in their memberships in the VDP (Prädikat Wine Estates), Demeter, and “La Renaissance des Appellations”. The result is a collection of exquisite and well-defined rieslings.

Selected from the Doosberg, Lenchen and Klosterberg appellations, all rich soils of loam with strains of grey quartzite creating a deeply concentrated mineral background and a truly focused riesling. Entirely hand-harvested grapes slow-pressed in whole clusters for several hours. Fermented with natural yeasts in stainless steel and large oak barrels on the complete lees until April.
