Carl Koch Sacktraeger Riesling Trocken
- Low stock - 18 items left
PRODUCER: Pharmacist and inventor Friedrich Koch laid the foundation stone for our winery in 1833 with the first vineyard purchases. His son Carl Koch, mayor of Oppenheim, led it to its present size at the end of the 19th century. The estate is in the hand of the seventh generation of the family, since 2009 Paul Berkes is the owner. 80% of the 12 ha of vineyards are located in the highest classified slopes above Oppenheim and Dienheim. Since 2010, the areas are cultivated biologically.
WINEMAKING: Certified organic, dry single vineyard Riesling from one of the premium vineyard sites of Rheinhessen. The wine is vinified and aged in 100% stainless steel, but with 20 hours of destemmed maceration and gentle pressing, which imparts a richness of mouthfeel.
TASTING NOTES: Super clear, fresh and aromatic bouquet of great purity. Flint flavours intertwine with ripe stone fruit aromas, but the nose is coolish, fresh and very attractive with its ripe yellow stone fruit. Round, elegant and powerful on the palate, this is a full-bodied, very intense and juicy Riesling with lots of juice and power.
