Rich with some opulence and spicy baked apple and soft pink grapefruit. Hints of orange and lovely acidity fill the palate. The bone dry finish is a delight.
Koehler-Ruprecht’s whole production is made using identical traditional techniques, an approach that Dominik says makes them "the last of the mohicans", with spontaneous fermentations in old oak casks taken to full dryness before ageing in large-format old barrels (some as old as 120 years).
Koehler-Ruprecht was founded in 1700s, building a reputation for quality dry Rieslings during a period when the style was nowhere near as popular as today. The Spätlese and Auslese trocken designations mean a lot here (not surprising considering they practically invented them) – so much so that they pulled out of the VDP once authorities banned the practice of declaring both the pradikat and the word trocken on a label at the same time. Estate Manager Dominik Sona’s decision was in keeping with the uncompromising ethos of previous long-time domaine owner, Bernd Philippi, who he worked alongside before taking over in 2012.
