Gunderloch 2015 Riesling Spatlese, Nackenheim Rothenberg, Rheinhessen
We were all saddened to hear of the death last year Gunderloch winemaker Fritz Hasselbach, a good friend to our store. His son Johannes is now at the helm and continues to make monumental wines, including this luxurious Riesling from the estate's premier vineyard. It's a ripe wine with a powerful aroma of slate and apricot. Sweet, full-bodied, full-flavored and pure, it also has nuances of white peaches and finishes with a creaminess. It's expensive, but pedigreed and it delivers.
