2014 Godlatzel Riesling Kabinett Trocken Winkeler Hasensprung
/ Single Bottle
Notes: Named for the abundance of hares that populate the area, "Hasensprung" is situated to the north-west of the village of Oestrich-Winkel. The vineyards are dominated by small, rolling hills and löss-based sub-soils deposited by the Rhein’s retreat into the valley. Due to the cooling effects on the rolling hills, many micro-climates exist inside of the Hasensprung area. Goldatzel works to express the specificity of their particular holdings. Really solid stuff here with loads of perky minerals and swinging levels of fruit. It's exotic yet tame. I hadn't heard of this producer until trying it, as I soon realized after they are new.
