WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE

Win Win Riesling is sourced from outstanding single-vineyard sites such as Reiterpfad, Kalkofen and Kieselberg, grown on a combination of red sandstone and limestone and vinified in 50% large oak barrels, 50% stainless steel. This is the most accessible wine from Von Winning Estate; astoundingly complex, wild yet elegant and produced using spontaneous fermentation in large wooden barrels. Notes of lime, white pepper and faint mandarin peel lead into a fleshy palate with good backbone and a moreish, long, soft dry finish and a thrilling acid backbone.

ABOUT THE WINERY

One of Germany’s oldest and most prestigious wineries, Weingut von Winning was founded in 1849 and revived as a family enterprise in 2007 by the late Achim Niederberger, bringing in the extremely talented Stephan Attman as winemaker and assisted by Andreas Huetwohl. Practicing organic and with enviable holdings of Grosses Gewächs vineyards across the villages of Ruppertsberg, Deidesheim, and Forst. Von Winning produces the most internationally renowned dry wines in Germany.
The Von Winning philosophy has historically relied on respectful cooperation with nature, with no use of herbicides or synthetical fertilisers in the vineyard, no fining and no use of pumping or filtration. Going against the more common (and less expensive) use of stainless steel fermentation, all of Von Winning’s Rieslings are fermented in oak barrels of different sizes, which contributes to their structure and complexity
