The Rotenberg is Gut Hermannsberg's most distant vineyard, resembling a lost world perched on its south-facing slopes above pristine forests and meadows.
We have recently planted another hectare of Riesling vines here, expanding our vineyard area in this long-forgotten terroir to a total of four hectares. We believe in a bright future for the Rotenberg.
Where the rock is exposed, the Rhyolite of the mountain resembles the surface of Mars! This imparts a unique smoky-spicy character to the dry Riesling Grand Crus (GG) from Rotenberg, interwoven with delicate notes of stone fruit and citrus.
The naturally sweet wines, Riesling Kabinett and Riesling Spätlese from this vineyard, are distinguished by their mineral freshness. Their taste reminds us of windy days when clouds race just above the summit of the Rotenberg in the sky.
The Rotenberg is located just a short drive from Gut Hermannsberg, in the Alsenz Valley.
