From the importer:
The Knebel family has been growing grapes in the village of Winningen since 1643 but the current incarnation of this estate is relatively young having been established by Rheinhard and Beate Knebel in 1990. Now led by their son, 34 year-old dynamo Matthias, the Knebel name has become synonymous with the revolution of quality winemaking in Germany over the last 15 or 20 years. Today, Matthias is working 6.5 hectares of vines in some of the steepest, most foreboding terraces in the world of viticulture. These are not easy grapes to harvest, and it is Matthias’ mother who made this—and all the— noble sweet wines at the estate. Riesling was harvested at 110° Oechsle with very little botrytis. It shows red peach, cassis, apricot and brown spices with a long, honeyed pear and spicy finish. Undoubtedly, a remarkable auslese in any vintage. 114 g/L residual sugar. Certified sustainable.
