"Entirely sourced from their own grapes, Kühn's 2018 Riesling Trocken Jacobus displays a beautiful white-golden color and perfectly ripe and refined fruit with discreet but lovely coolish and flinty notes. The palate is crystalline, salty and piquant and reflects the quartzite soils of the Rheingau perfectly. Great elegance and beautifully ripe and refined Riesling fruit lead to a stimulating and perfectly balanced finish. Tasted in May 2019."
Situated in the historic Rheingau on the right banks of the river Rhine, the Kühn Estate has been a cornerstone of German wine-making for roughly 230 years and has been passed down through 11 generations. Having grown into a 20 hectare estate, Peter Bernhard along with his wife Viktoria, his parents Peter Jakob and Angela, as well as his sister Sandra continue to both preserve the established traditions of their ancestors and to pursue modern viticultural techniques. In 2004 they made the decision to achieve a certification as organic and biodynamic winery. The belief and expectation of quality wine manifests itself in their memberships in the VDP (Prädikat Wine Estates), Demeter, and “La Renaissance des Appellations”. The result is a collection of exquisite and well-defined rieslings.
