Tesch Remigiusberg Riesling

$42.59

Managed by microbiologist Dr. Martin Tesch, this historic winery has been operated by the same family since 1723. We’re talking about eleven generations of winemakers! The estate is based in southeastern Germany in the wine region of Nahe. A smaller territory that was originally cultivated by the Romans, Nahe was little known up until the 1990’s. Prior to 1971, the wines were sold simply as “Rhine wine”. Altogether there are around 4000 hectares of vineyards, which are separated into 7 Grosslagen (wine districts). The Tesch wine estate is spread across 18 hectares and includes holdings in some of the region’s top sites – Königsschild, Löhrerberg, Krone, Karthäuser, and St. Remigiusberg. These sites are rated as Grosses Gewachs, Germany’s equivalent for Grand Cru.

At Weingut Tesch all of the wines have been fully dry since 2002. Any off-dry styles were eliminated in order to streamline the winery’s portfolio. Today Martin Tesch focuses on three varieties – Riesling, Spätburgunder and Weißburgunder. Thoroughly modern, since 2005 all of the wines have been bottled under screw caps. Martin’s one major nod to the past is to have a portrait of his great-grandfather on every label.
‘St. Remigiusberg is one of the smallest vineyards in the Nahe. The site is defined by its primarily volcanic and clay soil infused with iron ore. Located adjacent to the Karthäuser vineyard, the parcel was once owned by bendictine monks and gives greater yields than other sites. Compared to Tesch’s other wines, the ‘St. Remigiusberg Riesling is known for having greater power and opulence.
