Weingut Heinrichshof

Peter Griebeler is both articulate and ambitious. Having studied winemaking and done internships at two of Germany`s moth famous estates, Schlossgut Diel in the Nahe and Fritz Haag in the Mosel, PEter then worked as a winemaker at ZGM. In 2014 he decided to return to the family estate in Zeltingen where things are much smaller scale and artisan and very much focused on quality. Though the estate has acquired more vineyards over the past twelve months, its total holdin is still less than 6 hectares, a significant proportion of which are on the brilliant, steep slopes of Sonnenuhr and Schlossberg. 2014 was Peter`s first vintage and we are delighted to be representing these mouthwatering Rieslings. Whilst also making some sweeter styles, Peter`s focus is on the dry (trocken) style, which highlights the terroir and minerality of his sites. Through a range, the natural ripeness of the grapes, achieved through good exposure and vineyard management, means that whilst the wines are dry (about 6 grams of residual sugar) they have a lovely mid-palate weight that prevents them from being rasping. The zing and vitality are all there but there is enough fruit to carry them. For all that, his dessert wines are also stunning and cost almost nothing. This is a superb source of Riesling at great prices.
