Als war's ein Stuck von mir Riesling 2020


Tasting Note

“To read between the lines – the rows of vines – is like poetry to me. I am inspired by the moods, fragrances, and experiences that I encounter in the vineyard throughout the year” says Johannes Hasselbach of Gunderloch. Two vineyard parcels on the Roter Hang in particular have taken a special place in his heart and their character traits have been united in a wine named “Als wär’s ein Stück von mir” (as if it were a piece of me). Wine from young vines in the top site Nackenheimer Rothenberg has been blended with that from a parcel of 35-year-old vines to create a tautly strung wine with extraordinary aromatic expression. “My Riesling combines light-footedness with precision as an aromatic young wine and should have solid potential to express its inherent mineral character, spice, and persistence as it ages and further develops.”

"For “A piece of me” we decided to push an imaginary Reset-button and look back how the grandparents made wine. The focus lies on the grapes and we want to use every part of it (eg. long maceration time on fully crushed grapes up to 72 hours; minimal clarification; natural yeast fermentation; long time on lees) but also we want to make sure not to loose or alter anything (no artificial yeasts; no fining; no aromatization of any kind). This is only possible if we focus 100% on the vineyards and carefully select only 100% healthy grapes."
