GUT HERMANNSBERG IS „A WINERY TO WATCH“ AND THE 2012 BASTEI GG IS ONE OF THE „100 BEST WINES OF THE YEAR 2016
In their Annual Buying Guide 2016 the US Wine & Spirits Magazine identified just 12 producers as „A Winery to Watch“ and Gut Hermannsberg was one of them:
„Karsten Peter works exclusively with “Grand Cru” sites (Gut Hermannsberg only owns vines in sites classified as GROSSE LAGE/“Grand Cru” by the VDP) and has developed a series of wines that perfectly express the terroir richness of the Nahe region. From the 2012 vintage two wines are particularly impressive: the Bastei –a complex and concentrated Riesling, that grows in an amphitheater-like vineyard on volcanic rhyolite, and the Kupfergrube – a very focused Riesling with the energy of a laser beam.“
Both these wines are VDP GGs and for Wine & Spirits Magazine the 2012 Bastei GG is also one of the 100 Best Wines of the Year 2016. The 30th Annual Buying Guide has been online since 17.10.2016.
