Weinhaus Ress Rheingau Riesling Trocken 2019
This dry Riesling is made from fruit sourced from the Hattenheim, Hallgarten and Oestrich areas of the Rheingau. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, preserving the natural freshness and lightness of the wines.
Clear yellow-green in the glass, citrus, gooseberry and stone-fruit appear first on the nose, with additional flavours of pineapple, mango, grapefruit and green apple on the palate. Crisp, refreshing and medium-bodied, with a fine floral lift, cleansing acidity and dry finish.
Weinhaus Ress is the original brand created by Balthasar Ress, when he started making his own wine to serve guests at his inn in Hattenheim founded in 1870.

Producer: Balthasar Ress
Balthasar Ress set up Gasthof Ress, an inn and eatery in the idyllic village of Hattenheim on the Rhine river, in 1870, laying the foundation for a long gastronomic tradition as well as the family winery that fourth and fifth generation Stefan and Christian Ress manage today. It was Christian began the process of organic conversion of the vineyards in 2016, with over 50 hectares making Balthasar Ress the largest organic winery in the state of Hesse.
No other wine-growing region in the world is characterized by just one grape variety as much as the Rheingau by Riesling. So it is with Balthasar Ress, one of the few wineries that own vineyards in prestigious locations across the entire Rheingau, from Assmannshausen to Erbach. Riesling (90%) and Pinot Noir dominate the vineyards, producing world class wines while proudly protecting the flora and fauna that share the land. "We create fine Rieslings and fine Pinot Noirs for wine enthusiasts worldwide and always follow Balthasar's maxim: Fein Sei Der Wein!" (fine be the wine!). And so it is.
