Nico & Laura Rheinhessen Sauvignon Blanc 250ml Can - Rumford, RI
The limestone soils of the Pfaffenberg vineyard are planted with 40-year-old vines of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is grassy and peppery with refreshing acidity, bright citrus flavors and a calming minerality. Fermented by native yeast and aged in stainless steel.
Nico and Laura Espenschied farm their sustainable vineyards with unbelievable passion and care. The family has been making wine in this village and on these soils for 8 generations, with the 9th generation having fun growing-up and playing in the beautiful hillside vineyards and on the old sand stones that make up the courtyard of their house and the attached winery. They apply principles of organic and even biodynamic farming and have a deep connection to the land and vines they tend. In the cellar, they employ minimal intervention and natural winemaking to produce wines with finesse and balance.
