We vinify traditional expressive wines in both “Premier Cru” and “Grand Cru” classifications. Alongside Riesling, which has been growing continuously in these soils for more than 100 years, we believe that Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are the only varieties able to interpret the local terroir. The grapes for our wines always stem from our vineyards in and around Bad Kreuznach. We do not purchase any additional grapes or must. We intend to bottle as late as possible, but always when during tasting the wines tell us the right time.

In den Zehn Morgen stands for wines that are given time to develop in the barrel and the bottle – employing traditional handcraft in both a conservative and forward-looking way to create grand wines.

Kreuznacher Riesling trocken 2019

The Riesling comes from local vineyards in Bad Kreuznach. Steinberg monopole, as well as the Narrenkappe, Aufm Schlossberg, Auf dem Krötenpfuhl, Kauzenberg and Im Kahlenberg – all of them belong to Kreuznach. The vineyards have different geological compositions, which belongs to Nahe’s riverbeds. In addition to yellow and red sandstone, there is marl and loess. It gives the wines a gravel character.

The Riesling grapes were harvested by hand and brought to the winery in small containers. We apply a whole cluster pressing, to create more delicate wines. The Riesling was fermented spontaneously in a temperature-controlled manner in stainless steel, before ripening on full yeast and later on the lees in stainless steel.

The dry Kreuznacher Riesling 2019 has a light straw yellow color. The scent is determined by light notes of yellow apple and lemons with a few hints of lime. The fruit is accompanied by garden herbs and stony notes. The palate shows great independence – the Kreuznacher Riesling is bright and clear as a bell. Amalfi and Zedrat lemons mix with chalky notes and herbs. What distinct this outstanding Riesling is the creamy texture, refined with a lemon curd touch and countered by a present citrus solution. The finish is an interplay between subtle sweetness and saltiness.

Kreuznacher Rosenheck Riesling Kabinett 2019

This Riesling comes from Rosenheck – the southeast-facing location in Winzenheim. Winzenheim is a district of Bad Kreuznach and lies 160 to 200 meters above sea level. The clay-marbled soils ensure ripe fruit and substance.

The Riesling grapes were harvested by hand and brought to the winery in small containers. We apply a whole cluster pressing, to create more delicate wines. The Riesling was fermented spontaneously in a temperature-controlled manner in stainless steel, before ripening on full yeast and later on fine lees in stainless steel.

Kreuznacher Rosenheck Riesling Kabinett 2019 has a light yellow color, smells elegant and lively. In the foreground you can recognize the notes of a juicy Granny Smith apple and ripe lemons. The fruit is accompanied by delicate white flowers, herbs and mineral notes.

On the palate, this Riesling Kabinett is extremely lively and precisely balanced between fruit sweetness and a powerful citric acid. As on the nose, the Riesling is bright and clear in the mouth, with its aromas of yellow and green pome fruit, stone fruit and lemons. The simultaneous presence of sweetness, acidity and saltiness ensures a high drinking flow, which is further enhanced by the great juiciness in the final.

Kreuznacher Pinot Noir Rosé 2019

The Pinot Noir comes from Kreuznacher Hofgarten, which is characterized by stony-sandy loam and loess.

In the glass, the Kreuznach Pinot Noir Rosé 2019 shows an intense salmon color with a slightly ruby-red reflex. Already in the scent you can feel that this is a pleasantly fresh and rather spicy rosé, which combines drinking pleasure with complexity. Sweet and sour cherries are recognized here, as well as red currants and barberries. In addition to the fruit, there is a hue scent of blonde tobacco and ground limestone.

The palate confirms what the fragrance predicted. The Pinot Noir Rosé opens with a very slightly sweet fruit of wild raspberries, but this ripe fruit is by no means the determining element. Rather, it is the spicy and dry notes reminiscent of dry wood that make the rosé complex and make it an excellent accompaniment to food. At the same time, the fresh acid structure and the elegant fruit ensure drinking pleasure and fun by drinking.

Kreuznacher Grauburgunder 2019

The 2019 Grauer Bugunder comes from various locations of Bad Kreuznach, which are characterized by sandstone, clay and loess.

Grauburgunder grapes were harvested by hand and brought to the winery in small containers, where they were fermented as whole grapes in stainless steel and then fermented spontaneously under temperature control. 15% of Pinot Gris had a maceration time of 48 hours. The wine matured first on the whole lees and later on on the fine lees in stainless steel.

The Kreuznach Grauburgunder 2019 shows a medium straw yellow color and has a subtle, but persistent scent of both fresh and slightly crumbly yellow apple, combined with a spicy piquant note. It feels so, as if there was a bit of apple peel and also one or the other nut.

On the palate, the wine is determined by its spice, which seems to be a little more dominant here than the yellow, ripe fruit. Herbs, nuts and apple peels can be found in the taste as well as blonde tobacco and stone. This Grauburgunder is characterized by a successful balance of juiciness and ist spicy sides. In addition, there is a pleasant, very light tannin, which provides a subtle texture on the palate, and a lively acidity, which gives the Grauer Burgunder a lively backbone.

Sand & Kalkstein 2019

This cuvée is a mariage of Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc.

The Chardonnay comes from the vineyard named Pastorei, and, although Pastorei lays directly opposite the winery, it belongs to Bretzenheim and not to Kreuznach. Another part of the Chardonnay originates from Im Kahlenberg, which is rich on red and yellow sandstone. Weißburgunder was planted in the Kreuznacher Narrenkappe – another vineyard with sandstone as prime soil.

The grapes were harvested by hand and brought to the winery in small containers. We apply a whole cluster pressing, to create more delicate wines. The grapes fermented spontaneously in a temperature-controlled manner in stainless steel, before ripening on full yeast and later on the lees in stainless steel, as well as crafted in oak barrels with 2,600 L capacity.

The Sand & Limestone 2019 shines – the effect is gained through a bright yellow color. The cuvée smells elegant, juicy and delicately spicy. It starts with notes of green and yellow pears, accompanied by subtle hints of honeydew melon and vineyard peach. There is some stone next to the fruit and nuts, accompanied by a hint of lemon and apple peel.

Chardonnay and Weißburgunder in a blend provide a creamy texture on the palate. The fruit is reminiscent of ripe pears. It is permeated with a ripe and subtle acid. In addition to the silky, creamy aspect, you also get the impression that something piquant and tangy resonates – that provides the wine with an additional non-slip texture on the palate. This component, reminiscent of nuts and shells, also adds an additional dimension to the taste of Sand & Kalkstein Cuvée.
