More about this wine

Weingut Wittmann

Weingut Wittmann

From 1663, the Wittmann family and their ancestors were grape growers in the town of Westhofen, Rheinhessen. Today, Philipp Wittmann runs the estate, along with his parents and wife. Riesling is mainly grown, traditional for the region around the town of Westhofen with mostly marble-limestone soils. Two types of Pinot are also popular - Blanc and Gris - and Silvaner. Grapes have been grown organically for over 20 years. A lot of manual labor and skills lead only the best grains in the winery. The must is fermented naturally in wooden barrels. The slow fermentation and maturation deep in the cellars, at constantly low temperature and high humidity, preserves the natural aromas. Their best wines bear the names of the plots from which they come.

Rheinhessen

Rheinhessen

Регионът на Райнхесен е основен за германската винена индустрия и е дом на почти четвърт от лозовите насаждения в страната. Той е и най-големият по отношение на произведени количества вино. Райнхесен е сравнително топъл и сух регион, предпазен от неблагоприятни климатични влияния от планински вериги като Хунсрюк и Таунус. Повечето от лозята са засадени върху топлите и плодородни почви на долината, които са идеални за отглеждането на зряло и здраво грозде, а с репутация на традиционен източник на изключително качествени вина е прочутата Райнтерасе - участък от стръмни лозя покрай западния бряг на река Рейн около градовете Ниерщайн и Опенхайм. В Райнхесен доминират белите сортове, като водеща роля играе Ризлингът, следван от Мюлер-Тюргау, значими площи от лозята са отредени също така на Силванер, Грауер Бургундер (Пино гри) и Вайсер Бургундер (Пино блан). От червените сортове първенец е Дорнфелдер, с почти двойно повече насаждения от по-познатия и любим на всички Шпетбургундер (Пино ноар).

Riesling

Riesling

Riesling is an aromatic white grape variety that produces wine in the entire range - from botrytized sweet (one of the best in the world) to dry and semi-dry varieties, with captivating aromas of citrus and stone fruits, as well as the typical petroleum aroma, which in certain terroir appearances can dominate sensitively. Riesling's homeland can be said to be the valleys of the Rhine and Moselle rivers in Germany - the variety likes cooler weather. Naturally, here are the main wine regions of the country (Moselle, Rheinhessen, Rheingau, Pfalz). The vineyards are located on the steep hills, making mechanisation difficult, so here the viticultural activities are mainly manual. The wines from these regions are fresh and with a pronounced acidity. However, Riesling in Germany is by no means the main variety, in fact another is the wine region in which this variety is most common - and this is Alsace in France (or Elsaß in German). Unlike the German Riesling, the French Riesling is more saturated and lush due to the specifics of the microclimate there - the Vosges Mountains provide protection from northern winds and cold, and the sun is more generous in this southern region. Outside of these countries, perhaps Austria also presents itself with an interesting reading of this often called king of white varieties, and some countries of the New World successful experiment with it as well.
