The Spreitzer brothers, Andreas and Bernd, currently operate the family estate, founded in 1641. They own several of the top vineyard sites within the Rheingau, including Jesuitengarten. These vineyards are defined by their balanced sand, loam, and clay soils, and the brothers farm these storied vineyards as naturally as possible. This attention to detail, along with the finest terroir in the area, produces elegant styles of Riesling with varying levels of sweetness. This spätlese, or late harvest, is filled with ripe fruit and texture. They leave a fair amount of residual sugar, but it is balanced by the weight of ripe peach and apple flavors. The crisp finish, body, and lower alcohol pairs beautifully with richer meals.

Pairings:
Smoked trout & Guanciale crisp on a fried latke with apple cider brown butter
