Quick Overview

Grauburgunder wines are usually dry and slightly acidic. Those wines labeled as Ruländer are richer, fuller in body, sweeter, and more fragrant. Depending on the quality level of the wine, the color ranges from pale yellow to golden to almost amber. The wine shows fragrances of nuts, almonds, butter, pears, raisins, pineapple, and citrus fruits. A young, light, dry to medium dry Grauburgunder wine is perfect as a summer wine.

Details

Dynamic young vintner making weighty, sensational Nahe-like porphyry-wines, already among the very best in Rheinhessen, and certain to be THE next superstar-estate in the region. The estate is 12.5 hectares, in the westernmost district of Rheinhessen, near Bernhard. Soils vary, but there’s a significant vein of porphyry like the great soils of the Nahe (which is just a hop skip & jump over the hill), and there are times I think the world’s greatest rieslings grow on volcanic soil in general and porphyry in particular. And young Mr. Wagner has baskets of various soils in his tasting room, and has all his riesling-comprising 50% of his vineyards- planted on porphyry. The land is steeper here than in much of the Rheinhessen, and Wagner does 95% of his harvest by hand. Most musts are clarified by gravity, though some are fermented as-is. His basic-quality wines are made in stainless steel, but like many young vintners he’s leaning toward more old oak for the top rieslings. Similarly he ferments with cultured yeasts for the basic wines and with natural yeasts for the best rieslings. Most wines sit on the gross lees till February. All of this reveals a characteristic degree of thoughtfulness and flexibility for a young quality-minded vintner.
