More about this wine
For years, the Swiss entrepreneur Urban Kaufmann has been traveling through some of the best wine-growing regions in Europe, in search of the perfect place to realize his dream - to make wine. During his search, he met Eva Raps, a longtime director of the VDP (Verband Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter), an association of more than 200 German producers of high-quality wines. Thus was born a remarkable project with an excellent portfolio of vineyards, a lot of imagination, craftsmanship and the traditional values of the Rheingau wine region. The new team remains committed to the classic Rheingau, Riesling grapes, but also successfully grows Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and especially Pinot Noir - the variety with which Weingut Kaufmann has attracted considerable attention in Germany for more than twenty years. Today the winery is among the few organically certified in Rheingau. According to Eva Raps, the benefits of organic viticulture are already there and lead to the creation of wines with great finesse and beautiful aromas.All wines of the same producer
Riesling is an aromatic white grape variety that produces wine in the entire range - from botrytized sweet (one of the best in the world) to dry and semi-dry varieties, with captivating aromas of citrus and stone fruits, as well as the typical petroleum aroma, which in certain terroir appearances can dominate sensitively. Riesling's homeland can be said to be the valleys of the Rhine and Moselle rivers in Germany - the variety likes cooler weather. Naturally, here are the main wine regions of the country (Moselle, Rheinhessen, Rheingau, Pfalz). The vineyards are located on the steep hills, making mechanisation difficult, so here the viticultural activities are mainly manual. The wines from these regions are fresh and with a pronounced acidity. However, Riesling in Germany is by no means the main variety, in fact another is the wine region in which this variety is most common - and this is Alsace in France (or Elsaß in German). Unlike the German Riesling, the French Riesling is more saturated and lush due to the specifics of the microclimate there - the Vosges Mountains provide protection from northern winds and cold, and the sun is more generous in this southern region. Outside of these countries, perhaps Austria also presents itself with an interesting reading of this often called king of white varieties, and some countries of the New World successful experiment with it as well.More wines of the same variety
