Peter Jakob Kuhn, Lenchen Riesling Spatlese 2016
The nose is fresh and elegant green apple skin is notable. Spicy with liam and quartzite minerality, on the palate very fresh, spices, fruit notes of apple and stone fruits, beautifully complex and light at the same time.
As vintners it is part of our task to intervene with nature by sensitively cultivating it. The idea of biodynamics is to disturb nature as little as possible, creating a balance between nature and plantation. We achieve this for instance by applying natural compost, this way returning to the soil what our vines drain as nutrients. Due to these and other measures - like diverse planting - we sustain the quality and vitality of our soil also long-term. The compost, which mainly consists of cow dung is “inoculated” with various compost preparations, which in turn we also make ourselves from organic substances and plant parts. These preparations are applied similarly to homoeopathy in minimal doses. It is their task, to initiate and regulate the rotting process
For more than 230 years, the Kuhn family has been growing vines in the middle Rheingau. Knowledge of these special vineyard sites, with their soils of phylllite slate and Taunus quartzite, has been handed down and has indeed increased over the 10 generations. We look back on this long tradition with the greatest respect. Since 2004, we have been cultivating our vines and vineyards according to the principles of biodynamic agriculture.
