Als Wär's Ein Stück Von Mir Riesling 2015
Als Wär's Ein Stück Von Mir translates roughly as “a piece of me”. This proud, romantic and deeply personal Riesling was the first wine created by Johannes on taking over the family winery from his parents Agnes (née Gunderloch) and Fritz Hasselbach. Dry, spicy and spine-tinglingly fresh, it refreshes with steely lime, lemon sorbet, tart green apple, spiced gingerbread biscuits, pepper, cream and smoke nuances. Wonderfully versatile, it’s as happy with salads and barbeques in summer, as it is with sausages, duck, schnitzel or fish pie in winter.
It hails from a verdant stretch of the Rhine southwest of Frankfurt. Here the vertiginous organic and biodynamic vineyards are sandwiched between the river, which reflects the sun back up at the vines, and wind farms on the plateau above. The grapes come from an old vine parcel in Nierstein Hipping (home also to some of Weingut Keller’s Riesling) and younger vines on the extremely steep Nackenheimer Rothenberg slopes. Gunderloch was the first winery in Germany to put screw caps on its entire range and they’ve received several perfect 100 point scores from Wine Spectator.
