About This Wine

Riesling is grown in cool-climate areas around the world.

But it’s in Germany’s Rheinhessen region where it attains its full potential. Rheinhessen lies in a valley of rolling hills, bordered on the west by the Nahe River and on the north and east by the Rhine. This 20 by 30-mile area sits between the communities of Worms, Alzey, Mainz and Bingen.

The Rheinfront or Rheinterrasse are names given to the vineyards on gentle slopes directly facing the Rhein (Rhine), and they produce some of the finest Riesling wines in all of Germany, including the 2015 vintage from Carl Zuckmayer. “Vintage 2015 delivers very fruit-driven, elegant, lively, bright and durable wines,” the Carl Zuckmayer vintner tells us.

Like biting into a Granny Smith apple, this wine has some residual sugar but it’s not too sweet. Very well balanced with a touch of spritz, it’s a delightful summertime or anytime wine.
