    Winemaker Notes

    A feinherb or "off-dry" style (around 20-25g/l RS depending on the vintage) named in honor of Johannes' father, world-renowned winemaker Fritz Hasselbach at the Gunderloch winery. This grows in a very small and special part of Rheinhessen called the Roter Hang meaning the “red hill”. Located between the village of Nackenheim and the village of Nierstein 20 kilometers south of the city of Mainz, the characteristic name of this area is ascribable to its vivid red slate soil. The vineyards are very close to the river Rhein on steep slopes facing south-east. The combination of those four factors—the red slate soil, the closeness to the river, great sun exposure and the steepness of the vinyards—are the perfect combination to produce Fritz’s Riesling.

    The Gunderloch estate in Nackenheim, just southwest of Frankfurt, was founded in 1890 by the banker Carl Gunderloch on the banks of the river Rhine. From the beginning, the estate was run with a strict commitment to quality. He bought top vineyard sites, including a large part of great Nackenheim Rothenberg. Since its foundation, the estate has stayed in the same family, now in its fifth generation, with Agnes and Fritz Hasselbach. It comprises 30 acres of vineyards in the towns of Nacknheim and Nierstein. The principal grape varietal is Riesling, which finds its most powerful espression in the Nackenheim Rothenberg vineyard. The combination of its steepness, exposure, soil structure and proximity to the river gives the Rothenberg vineyard the optimal microclimates for ripening its famous Rieslings.

    Extending south from the Rheingau region to become a valley of gently rolling hills, Rheinhessen is Germany’s largest wine region. The best Rieslings of Rheinhessen, often characterized by smoky, peach and citrus aromas, come from vines grown in the red soils of the Rheinterrasse.

    Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
