"Well-knit, with hints of lanolin gliding along the citrus and jonagold apple notes, showing hints of cream in the background. Very expressive, backed by depth and a firm structure. Long finish. Drink now through 2027.
2,500 cases made, 600 cases imported."
The history of the Bassermann-Jordan winery is one that is intertwined with the history of winemaking in Pfalz. Along with other passionate producers in the region, each generation of the Jordan family established and greatly influenced quality-based viticulture in Germany over the past 300 years. In 1718, Pierre Jordan purchased the family's first vineyards in Pfalz, while Johann-Peter Jordan built the winery in Deidesheim sixty-five years later. Around the turn of the century, Andreas Jordan elevated quality winemaking in Pfalz by becoming one of the first growers in the area to plant single varieties by vineyard and was also one of the first winemakers to vinify each vineyard separately. A marriage between the Bassermann and Jordan families added the name Bassermann to the winery in 1883. Bassermann-Jordan is one of the founding members of the VDP, Germany's top organization to ensure quality wine.
The Riesling grapes are sourced from vineyards around Ruppertsberg, Deidesheim, and Forst. The nose has floral notes with accents of peach and fresh pear. Light and refreshing on the palate with lots of elegance. Gentle sweetness and a fine acidity gives a nice balance to this Riesling. Pairs perfectly with Asian food, seafood, or just as a delicious sipping wine.
