  • Delivery Information

This late release Riesling comes from three vineyards in Westhofen: Morstein, Kirchspiel, Benn. The soils consist of limestone and loamy clay. After a cold soak of approximately 12 hours, the wine is spontaneously fermented.

Katharina is one of many shining lights of a new generation of winemakers that cement Rheinhessen's reputation as a serious wine region for extraordinary quality. Following a Media career she decided in her 30’s to leave Berlin to start training as a winemaker, for which she also spent some significant time with Klaus Peter Keller. Back in 2012, she then took over the family estate in Westhofen and never looked back. Since then she has continuously improved quality and is currently in the process of converting to organic while also practicing biodynamics in her vineyards. The estate covers about 17ha with south facing vineyards and an average vine age of 50+ years.
