2018 Huff Weißburgunder trocken Rheinhessen
Just like Huff's great Sylvaner, this Weißburgunder is a universal wine at its finest! Somewhat more powerful and spicy, it is characterized both by the lime and slate-containing layers as well as by the maceration and the partial maturation in large wooden barrels. Pear, apple peel, mint, lim combined with powerful minerality. Cool, juicy, but also quite full and well-defined. An extremely rewarding food companion. It can do a lot, but doesn't have to prove itself. Very nice with hearty vegetable dishes, shellfish and white meat.
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.
