Andi Schneider is widely considered one of Germany’s top up-and-coming Riesling specialists. Of his production, two thirds is dedicated to this grape variety. He farms 13.5 hectares of vines in the region of Nahe. Altogether he releases 70,000 bottles each year, including one estate Riesling, three ‘village’ level wines (two Riesling, one Sauvignon Blanc) and three single-vineyard Rieslings. His three single-vineyard Rieslings, all made using 100% wild ferment, are from grapes grown on the slate and quartzite soil of Domberg, the basalt rock of the unofficial ‘grand cru’ of Felsenberg and the red clay of Marbach.
This red wine from K.H. Schneider is all about easy drinking. Created in 1955, Dornfelder is known for it’s juicy and vibrant fruitiness. This wine silky tannins and bright black berry flavours. Best served with a slight chill.
