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.
The Oestricher Lenchen Kabinett is grown on fertile loess with red iron rich quartzite and clay on a south-west facing slope that slants into the valley of the brook. Early morning fog promotes the growth of botrytis cinerea which is ideal for producing a noble and sweet riesling. The grapes are hand-picked on a selective basis. Fermentation and maturing in stainless steel vats with natural yeast. Bottled mid-April 2018.
