we own 0.7 acres of this vineyard grape variety: 100% Riesling
Site and soil: Apart from Berg Schlossberg, this vineyard is said to be the best site in the Rüdesheimer Berg area. The name is derived from the Middle High German word "rotten", which points to the clearing ("Rodung") of the area in the 11th century. The sheltered location very close to the River Rhine and deep layers of the predominant loess loam soil interspersed with quartzite, shale and gravel produce wines that boast fruitiness, minerality and a delicate acidity.
Character: The Rieslings that originate from the steep slopes of Berg Rottland belong to our most mineral wines. They are beautifully refined and have a fascinating length. This is where Rüdesheimer Berg shows all its power and complexity.
