Wittmann Vom Kalkstein Riesling Trocken 2021


Stately, mineral, dry Riesling from one of the world's best. It's a no brainer. Juicy yellow stone fruit and citrus give over to  a chalky and linear palate. All made from estate grown, estate fruit, this is the Wittmann family's warm welcome to their place -  "They say that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Our Gutswein serve as that calling card, introducing the elegance and sense of place for which our Rheinhessen estate is known."

The Wittmann’s have been making wine in the village of Westhofen, Rheinhessen since the 17th century. Far from resting on their laurels, the family were early to adopt organic practices, becoming certified in 1990, and biodynamic from 2004. Philip Wittmann is currently at the helm, and like his wife Eva Clüsserath (who runs her own family’s Mosel estate), is one of the superstars of the German wine industry. Situated on the left bank of the Rhine River, Rheinhessen is Germany’s largest wine region. Its a fertile valley of gently rolling hills, protected from cold fronts by the surrounding hills and forests.
