Enjoy wine in the Middle Rhine valley

The epitome of a German wine region with castles and crags towering above the river Rhine and ancient winemaking villages and romantic little towns such as Bacharach, Linz and Oberwesel. This is the home of the Riesling grape which grows on such steeply terraced vineyards that it requires great effort from the winegrowers to pamper and harvest the grapes. The results are full-bodied, fruity wines full of character, attributes that come from the poor shale in which they are grown. Vines are grown here on 465 hectares comprising mainly hillside vineyards, slate and weathered greywacke soils, isolated islands of loess and soils of volcanic origin.

White wines of the Middle Rhine

Riesling
The “queen of grapes” on the Middle Rhine where it enjoys perfect growing conditions. These late-ripening grapes produce exquisite, tangy, acidic wines with fine aromas and mineral notes. The 2007 vintage had an optimum sugar/acidity ratio of 100° Oechsle at an acidity of 9 promille.

Müller-Thurgau
The hilly vineyards along the Rhine allow this grape to develop a very bold, intense flavour. When served in the right glass, the wine unfolds a flowery, aromatic note of nutmeg.

Kerner
Kerner is one of the mid-to-early wine varieties on the Rhine. An assertive, fruity wine with a character similar to Riesling.

Grauburgunder (pinot gris)
A bold, full-bodied, dry wine. Aromas of melon, honey and butter. It can also have smoky, spicy and mineral aromas.

Scheurebe
Excellent dry wines that require a good position but do not mind stony ground. Aromas of blackcurrants and ripe grapefruit.

Red wines of the Middle Rhine

Spätburgunder (pinot noir)
The best-known red grape variety from the Middle Rhine: bold, full-bodied and with a velvety, fiery taste. Wine growers who harvest it late are rewarded with high Oechsle levels. 100° Oechsle in 2007 – just perfect.

Dornfelder
Dark-red wines with body, tannin and berry aromas.

Portugieser
If this grape is allowed to fully ripen, it can be soft, velvety and a wonderful deep colour.
