Ripe yellow fruit and peaches on the nose, alongside herbs, ginger, orange zest and nutty, oxidative notes. Juicy on the palate, it unfolds with layers of fine spice, formative phenolics and minerality. Powerful and long, it’s a compact Riesling with complexity, density and chock-full of character. A bold statement by the Scheuermann brothers.
This promising powerhouse from the Pfalz produces the most spectacular German wines we’ve had in a long while. @weingut_scheuermann is run by brothers Gabriel and Simon and is located in the village of Niederkirchen, part of the Palatinate’s northern Mittelhaardt district. Founded in 2009, their winery cultivates 31 hectares of vineyards, which they farm biodynamically certified. The majority of their fruit is sold off, but the grapes from the best locations are used to make their own phenomenal range of wines. Following their motto of ‘Kontrolliertes Nichtstun’, they intervene as little as possible in the vineyard and the cellar, aiming to express a clear sense of place and uniqueness.
