Straw with green reflexes. The bouquet opens with slightly spicy aromas, ripe pineapple and peach. The palate shows good concentration with mineral notes, a slightly salty hint and ripe yellow fruits before the long finish.

The Domaine
His 21 hectares of vineyards are based in the Rheinhessen which is currently undergoing what might be termed a ‘Rheinhessen revival’ with Jochen at its forefront. From the 2010 vintage, Jochen‘s wines all have Organic certification and he also uses Biodynamic methods for much of his estate (although has chosen not to be certified). He reduced the yields in the vineyard and identified the best parcels of vines in order to vinify each separately. As expected of an Organic estate, his approach in the cellar is as natural as possible, using only wild yeasts to ferment the must and harvesting only fully ripe grapes (rather than chaptalising, or adding ‘süss-reserve‘ to sweeten the wines after vinification for the Auslese styles).
