Balthasar Ress own 5,6 ha of this 52,1 ha site based in their home town of Hattenheim. The site is relatively long and slopes toward the west, thereby protecting it (in German, “schützen”) from cold easterly winds. Because the soils are deep, they are able to store considerable water reserves. This vineyard often provides the raw materials to make this light and fruity Riesling Kabinett. Nice and ripe it shows apricot, lime, chalk and pepper. The palate have a fresh burst of sweetness at the front but the tangy acid makes for a dry finish with a hint of phenolic bite. This would be great with san choy bau. Drink now until 2022. A famous Rheingau wine estate founded in 1870. Now the Ress family have an enviable 46 hectares of vineyards throughout the amazing Rheingau. The estate is 90% Riesling with Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc).
