Sweet and Nobly Sweet Wines
The beautifully balanced sweet and nobly sweet wines impress you through their richness of contrasts and remarkably complex composition: a hint of yellow peach, aromatic citrus fruits, natural sweetness and salty freshness. These wines really are something special. Their spritz-filled souls make the wine lover’s heartbeat faster when she realizes that their youthfulness is almost immortal. Each nobly sweet wine is an ambassador for the vineyard site where it ripened. The interplay of warming sunshine with refreshing cool wind from the West gives the wines a balance that’s unparalleled.
“Nobly sweet” refers to wines that are defined by their generous natural grape sweetness. The nobly ripened grapes give aromas reminiscent of honey, ripe peach, roses or caramel.
Riesling Kabinett has a filigree all of its own. Lightness and pin-point balance accompany the wine’s subtle aromas. A very special composition makes this wine the perfect end to the day, but it also discreetly and stylishly pairs with the dishes of the day. It’s home vineyard sites come together in the glass, each bringing different characteristics to form a symbiosis of fruity-sweet elegance and fresh minerality. Our Riesling Kabinett accompanies exotic Asian dishes with fish and chili as happily as it does a local roast goose. Or well chilled it makes the perfect summer wine. It’s a multi-talented individualist.
Altenbamberger Rotenberg Spätlese
Our Altenbamberger Rotenberg Spätlese entangles you from the first sniff of its bouquet. It presents you with a range of aromas that includes red berries, but also juicy ripe figs and blood orange, so that the wine is like a whole basket of fruit. The fine acidity of this Spätlese acts as a counterpoint to the natural grape sweetness on the palate, preventing it from tasting cloying. The south-facing slopes of this spectacular site, the Altenbamberger Rotenberg, are the furthest from the Gut Hermannsberg cellars. They look out over the valley of the Alsenz, a tributary of the Nahe. This steep hillside composed of volcanic Rhyolite overlook the town of Altenbamberg where the cooling wind enables the grapes to ripen slowly. The red soil gives this unique vineyard site its name. They are also the highest altitude vineyards of Gut Hermannsberg,a situation which shapes the wines’ acidity structure giving the wines unbelievable tension.
Niederhäuser Steinberg Spätlese
Our Niederhäuser Steinberg Spätlese is a naturally sweet wine with a surprising mineral freshness alongside the mouth-filling fruit character, the nose and palate spoiling your senses with citrus fruit and salty freshness. Exoticness is married to understatement to make this wine a box full of surprises. Through aging in the bottle its palpable potential develops, the picturesque and complex aromas unfurling in a clear line. It creates a harmony of opposites, is a wine that could only come into existence in the special climate of the Nahe and will unquestionably give you great pleasure.
