2018 Huff Schwabsburger Riesling trocken Rheinhessen
A very distinctive local wine. The cool, hard-stone layers of the Huff winery around Nierstein-Schwabsburg make the wine a little less fruity, and rather slim and cool. Red slate which is typically found around Schwabsburg ,brings in a good amount of spicy minerality. Juicy apple, grapefruit, salted lemon, herbs. Stony, spicy, and of good length. It needs a big glass and is best served with food. Because of its balanced taste, it's very variable. It's a perfect companion of fresh goat cheese and goes well with light fish dishes.
The Huffs run a real family winery in Schwabsburg, a part of Nierstein on the famous Rote Hang in Rheinhessen. Today run by Christine and her New Zealand born husband Jeremy Bird-Huff, the winery has a long history. The family Huff has been making wine for more than three hundred years and Christine's parents still play a big role today. Both father Ekkehard, who still helps working in the vineyard and mother Doris, who works in sales. Christine and Jeremy's also have two children, plus the winery dog. The Huffs cultivate about 9 hectares of vineyards, including famous Niersteiner sites such as Orbel and Pettenthal and, above all, their magnificent primelocation at Schwabsburg-Rabenturm Castle. They produce as close to nature as possible, without using artificial fertilizers and herbicides. Sascha of Goldhahn und Sampson has had a long history with the Huffs, first visiting them in spring 2015, together with his family. And we have been fans and partners of this picture book winery ever since.
