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).

A really fresh, crisp easy to drink wine.

Love this one too Marjie - thanks for the great review! Cheers Eamon

Well worth waiting for

This is a glorious Riesling. I had been looking forward to tasting it and was delighted with the experience. We had it with potatoes, fish and asparagus. It turned a lovely meal into a banquet. I will be drinking much more of this.

Sean O’Neill (Dublin)
Good minerality, clean and fresh mouthfeel.

Top Riesling from a small producer, low in alcohol, good length, very approachable, goes well on a sunny patio to cool you down!!!😎
