Fritz's

Vivacious, fruity, off-dry Riesling with 22-25g residual sugar. Fritz’s Riesling (named for world-renowned winemaker Fritz Hasselbach at the Gunderloch winery) grows in a very small and special part of Rheinhessen called the Roter Hang meaning the “red hill”. Located between the village of Nackenheim and the village of Nierstein 20 kilometers south of the city of Mainz, the characteristic name of this area is ascribable to its red slate soil. The vineyards are very close to the river Rhein on steep slopes facing south-east. The combination of those four factors—the red slate soil, the closeness to the river, great sun exposure and the steepness of the vinyards—are the perfect combination to produce Fritz’s Riesling, one of best value wines in our book.
