Grosses Gewächs

Rümmelsheimer Steinköpfchen Riesling 2020

Our “Pieroth Großes Gewächs” is at the top of the winery’s quality pyramid. The basis for this Riesling are grapes from selected plots that had already impressed us with their quality and aromatics in autumn 2019.


The Rümmelsheimer Steinköpfchen site is located in the immediate vicinity of Burg Layen, north-east of the village centre. The gravelly-sandy loam soil with good water-holding properties and the ideal sun exposure of the south-southwest orientation on the slopes and steep slopes characterise the terroir.


After spontaneous fermentation – i.e. the fermentation process took place without the addition of pure yeasts – in two large barrels, the wine matured for another 10 months in oak barrels. This natural process, the long contact with fine yeast and wood as well as the time to mature allow for a special aroma. This is initially characterised by a hint of vanilla, followed by delicate herbal notes. Then the wine opens up and shows its fine fruity aroma of ripe peach and juicy apricot. Further facets develop with exotic mango aromas and lively citrus notes. A unique minerality and the pithy acidity characterise a lasting taste. A complex and expressive wine that offers excellent ageing potential.
