90 points Wine Enthusiast
"Dusty mineral and pollen notes lend complexity to decadent honey and apricot in this medium-sweet auslese. It's lavish and creamy in texture yet tightly balanced by spine-tingling lemon-lime acidity. It offers an exceptional value for such an opulent wine." *Best Buys*
Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: At the beginning of the 18th Century Napoleon travelled along the Rhine. In order to finance his expeditions, he sold his properties of old nobility courts, also in Nierstein. Our ancestor, Kaspar Schneider, used this opportunity. He bought the vineyards setting therewith the basic stock for our present business. Since this time the family life and work is characterized by dealing with vine, its soils, and the nature in Nierstein. Some generations have followed the family wine growing tradition since then. With the vintage 2012 the baton was passed on to the next generation. After over 40 years of wine making, Albrecht Schneider took a step back, handing over the responsibility to his daughter Ursula and her husband Steffen Muller. However, a family-run business does not work without family. No generation works without the expertise and experience of the forerunners. We are pleased that our ”8thgeneration” is still literally living winery with us. And we feel blessed having family and committed employees around us, who turn each vintage into a unique one.
