Winemaker Notes

The 2020 vintage of Gunderloch Jean-Baptiste Rheinhessen Riesling Kabinett is their 30th anniversary bottling! Always a pleasure and always great value for Riesling-lovers, the grapes for Jean-Baptiste are grown on the lower terraces of Gunderloch's three top vineyard sites: Nierstein Hipping, Nierstein Pettenthal and Nackenheim Rothenberg (all grand cru sites). Technically a feinherb style, or "balanced off-dry” at about 22-24g/l RS every year. This is a wine that is again and again a great way to introduce one to the joys of German Riesling.

Critical Acclaim

James Suckling

This could be the ideal introduction to drier-style rieslings for skeptics, because it has so much charm and vitality. The balance of juicy grapefruit (pink and yellow) character with mineral acidity is instantly appealing. Long, clean finish. The 30th vintage of this wine! Drink or hold.

Gunderloch  Winery Image
The Gunderloch estate in Nackenheim, just southwest of Frankfurt, was founded in 1890 by the banker Carl Gunderloch on the banks of the river Rhine. From the beginning, the estate was run with a strict commitment to quality. He bought top vineyard sites, including a large part of great Nackenheim Rothenberg. Since its foundation, the estate has stayed in the same family, now in its fifth generation, with Agnes and Fritz Hasselbach. It comprises 30 acres of vineyards in the towns of Nacknheim and Nierstein. The principal grape varietal is Riesling, which finds its most powerful espression in the Nackenheim Rothenberg vineyard. The combination of its steepness, exposure, soil structure and proximity to the river gives the Rothenberg vineyard the optimal microclimates for ripening its famous Rieslings.

Extending south from the Rheingau region to become a valley of gently rolling hills, Rheinhessen is Germany’s largest wine region. The best Rieslings of Rheinhessen, often characterized by smoky, peach and citrus aromas, come from vines grown in the red soils of the Rheinterrasse.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
