This wine is from a village called Kallstadt, famous (or infamous) for sending two notorious sons to the US in the mid 1800s: Herr Heinz and Herr Trump.

It’s also called Vom Saumagen because the vineyard is shaped like a sow’s stomach.

Is your mouth watering yet?

Those two interesting facts aside, this is an incredibly delicious Riesling. 

It all starts in the vineyard - limestone mixed with loam soil is great for water retention in the summer. Part of the vineyard is south-facing, which gets extra ripeness and flavour in the grapes.

This is a region on the rise - a local winemaker just received the first ever 100 Parker Points for Riesling - so Gerd’s grapes are in hot demand.

Gerd grew up in a sleepy German village called Bad Durkheim, where his parents and grandparents were farmers and grapegrowers. 

You might not be surprised to learn Gerd is now a winemaker in Bad Durkheim, but made damn sure he experienced the world before settling back here.

This one straight from Gerd - spring potatoes with pan-fried trout and white asparagus salad (there a few lakes in our forests with trout, and spring is the season for white asparagus and new potatoes).

Riesling that is much better than you may have had before...

This is beautiful. minerality, acidity, tingling on tongue. Fruity flavours, lingering.
The only reason I give this 4 stars, I know in Gerards stable there is another riesling that amazingly is even better!
