A sweet and generous Riesling with a brilliant aromas and flavors of spiced apricots, peaches, marmalade and flinty minerals. Stunningly well balanced it is an incredible journey from the first encounter to the satisfying finish. Pair on its own or with river fish, chicken and veal dishes, spicy Asian or Indian cuisines. This wine can be aged - up to 10-12 years after the vintage. 

The Goldloch vineyard is often considered one of the best vineyards in the Nahe region of Germany. Using France's classification as a model, the VDP (a winegrower group in Germany whose members adhere to meticulous vineyard and winemaking practices) has awarded it the highest classification, Grosse Gewachs or Grand Cru. Because this wine has the Spatlese (late harvest) designation, grapes are manually harvested late in the season. It takes multiple passes through the vineyard to harvest these perfect grapes, with some having a touch of botrytis cinerea (noble rot) on occasion (but not always). Note: Spatlese on a German wine label means 'late harvest.' These Rieslings are sweet, but very well balanced with fresh acidity so they can be paired with richer or more intensely spiced 'regular' food as well as certain desserts.

The Schlossgut Diel property in the Nahe wine region of Germany includes vineyards, a castle and winery, and are significant historically. The  Diel family bought the winery in 1802 from Baron Dalberg, who successfully prevented its confiscation by Napoleon’s troops in 1789. The winery is currently owned by noted gourmand and wine aficionado, Armin Diel, who is recognized for promoting German wine. His daughter, Caroline, oversees winemaking. Diel’s wines offer comparisons of both terroir and intensity, achieved at various levels of ripeness. Diel is among the very few who still produces each Grosses Gewächs (equivalent to Grand Cru, meaning Great Growth) site at each Pradikät (ripeness level expressed in ripeness level terms, e.g. residual sugar).

Diel's steep vineyards are on soils of clay, slate, quartz and gravels. Because of the steepness of the slopes, organic viticulture is practiced as much as possible. With recognized great sites, meticulous vineyard management and winemaking, Diel's wines continue to receive wide acclaim.
