Description

This is very cool, very authoritative, very click-click Riesling with a core of lime, peach, hay and maybe a suggestion of fresh nuts around the edges.

The 'GG' is the best wine from the estate and truly expresses the character of the site, perfectly ripened grapes give it a potential to age.

Grapes for the 'Am Lumpen' wines are carefully selected from the steepest parts of the Escherndorfer Lump vineyard - a directly south-facing precipitous slope with vines that are over 30 years old. This 'Am Lumpen' site was first referenced in 1655, and is Horst Sauer's most premium 'Grosse Lage' site - the classification for the very best German vineyards. The terroir produces long lived wines with an unmistakeable concentration of fruit.

Weingut Horst Sauer is named after its owner. Both Horst and his daughter Sandra (who joined the winery in 2004) are winemakers at their 37 hectare estate in Franken - situated near Wurzburg (between Frankfurt and Nuremberg). Eight different grape varieties are planted, including Riesling, Silvaner and Müller-Thurgau. Their vineyards are focused around the 'Erste Lagen' (prime) sites of Escherndorfer Lump and Escherndorfer Furstenberg. Escherndorfer Lump is a steep south-facing slope protected from cold north-eastern winds, with a top layer of limestone-rich soil. Escherndorfer Furstenberg is an east-facing vineyard which borders the Lump site to the east and west.
