KRUGER-RUMPF 2013 MUNSTERER DAUTENPFLANZER SPATLES RIESLING SPATLESE

WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "From the precious filet of the Kapellenberg, the stainless-steel fermented 2013 Münsterer Dautenpflanzer Riesling Spätlese contains "10 to 15 per cent of botrytis grapes" and opens with an intense aroma of ultra-ripe pineapples and mango, including some shellfish flavors. The palate is sweet, piquant and very elegant, extremely well balanced and seductive, the sweetness is nothing but luscious and sensual. This is a great Riesling Spätlese on its own but if you have the patience to store it for a decade or two it could also be a great food wine. (Can't spit it...)

In general, I think 2013 is a very classical German vintage,“ says Georg Rumpf. Most of the wines were bottled without a chemical deacidification. The Rumpfs preferred a short maceration (up to eight hours) to buffer the pronounced acidity of the vintage, and indeed the wines are well balanced although they keep their sturdy, house character. Winemaking is very traditional here, no enzymes are used for the must clarification and the aging of the wines takes place in stainless steel and traditional Stückfässern (1200 oak barrels). "However, we focus more on larger casks up to 2,500 liters in the last years to keep the elegance and finesse in our wines,“ says Georg, who keeps his wines on the lees until the bottling, which takes place from March until June.

In the last four years the family purchased top parcels with old vines from the mid 1960s in top crus like Pittersberg, Kapellenberg and Rheinberg from the former Weinbaudomäne Niederhausen-Schloss Böckelheim (which is now Gut Hermansberg). Another highlight is the Binger Scharlachberg in Rheinhessen which the family took from Prinz Salm’s Villa Sachsen."

Münsterer Dautenpflänzer is composed of slate and sandy loam and is one of Kruger-Rumpf’s top sites. Multi-faceted and complex, this GG site is one of the leading Grand Crus of the lower Nahe, with a typical mélange of soil types within its borders. Vineyards are farmed sustainably!
