Von Winning ''Winnings'' Riesling 2019 - Pfalz, Germany
Varietals: 100% Riesling
The wine is charming and limpid. Spicy and stylish and snappy on the finish, with a lift and lissome-ness that’s more Nahe than Pfalz.
Since Von Winning Winery was founded in 1849, unique wines reflecting their vineyards in Ruppertsberg, Deidesheim, and Forst have been produced in their historic cellar. In 1907, Leopold von Winning, son-in-law of Dr. Andreas Deinhard, dedicated his life to creating top-quality wines with respect to the outstanding vineyards in which he was allowed to work. He meticulously raised the quality of the wines to a new level and became a founding member of VDP, an association of German premium wineries. His decision to work as gentle and close to nature as possible remains the overarching goal of today’s young and ambitious team led by Stephan Attmann. Thus, the visionary Leopold von Winning’s legacy of great wine lives on!
Intensive and sustainable work in the vineyard enables us to harvest grapes of optimal balance for vinification without interfering with the wines’ inner structure. The vineyard’s layout in their new high-density plantings, for example, does not follow the machine’s design or “efficient” cultivation methods. Out of their own demand for quality and tradition, the original viticultural principles reemerged, allowing our vineyards to regain the face of earlier times!
