description

Overt, “sweet” fruit; you can call it green but it’s more toward herbs and less toward veggies or brassicas. I’m tasting it warm; one must allow for that. Served cold it’ll be all cucumber, tarragon and dill.

“II” = Stainless steel only

Sourced from Deidsheimer Paradiesgarten (high density planting), Deidesheimer Herrgottsacker and Kallstadter Steinacker.

The fact that this estate is crafting some of the very best dry wines in Germany is no fluke, rather a result of nearly obsessive winemaker Stephan Attman’s commitment to both dedicated cultivation of Deidesheim and Forst’s best sites and meticulous work in the cellar. Von Winning maintains some of the oldest parcels in Grosses Gewächs vineyards smattered across Forst, Deidesheim, and Ruppertsberg. Attman’s every decision is informed by great enthusiasm and experiences at estates in the Cote d’Or and abroad. For example, Attman’s newer vines are planted at a very high vine density- 9500 vines per hectare, as opposed to the more typical less than 5000. This creates competition amongst the vines, forcing the roots to grow deep, naturally reducing yields. Attman has adopted the single cane trellising system, prevalent in Burgundy, and Grosses Gewächs wines ferment in 500mL French barrels. Von Winning practices organic and sustainable viticulture.
