2019 Seckinger Riesling vom Löss trocken Pfalz
As the name suggests, this Riesling comes from vineyard sites around Deidesheim, Königsbach, Ruppertsberg and Niederkirchen, which are characterised by loess-rich soils. This makes the wine slender and gives it a beautiful mineral freshness. The grapes are first hand-picked and then spontaneously fermented. Afterwards, the wine gets a few months of yeast storage in stainless steel and used wooden barrels before it's filled up with a small amount of sulphur. The Riesling smells of pear, quince and a little peach. In addition, there are herbal aromas and a creamy yeasty note. The acidity is well integrated and gives Riesling vom Löss its beautiful drinkability.
Until a few years ago, the Seckinger winery was only known to insiders. Now they are literally on everyone's lips. The three brothers Jonas, Philipp & Lukas from Niederkirchen in the Palatinate have founded their own business within a few years, in addition to studying viticulture and gaining work experience, and have catapulted themselves into the first rank of Palatinate winemakers by now. What started out very small with one hectare in 2012 has since grown into a company that produces exciting German natural wines on about twenty hectares. Wines that set standards. The three brothers cultivate a whole series of vineyards around the towns of Deidesheim, Ruppertsberg, Königsbach and Niederkirchen. From the very beginning, the vineyards have been consistently cultivated organically and biodynamically. The Seckingers devote a lot of time to the reclamation of overgrown, terraced slopes on the edge of the Haardt in the Palatinate. In the wine cellar, the Seckinger brothers continue their work consistently. They do so, without using technical aids, and for their Pure line, they even renounce using sulphur. This also means spontaneous fermentation, sometimes maceration times for the whites and long yeast storage for all wines. This requires very precise, clean work with extremely healthy grapes. Since the wines from the Pure line are bottled unfiltered, they are not allowed to bear a place name. The Seckingers circumvent this restriction by using letter codes such as DD for Deidesheim and R for Ruppertsberg. The result is very harmonious, self-contained wines of great radiance and tension. For all their consistency, their wines always remain accessible. A true recommendation, especially for those new to natural wines. We are curious to see how the three brothers will continue on their path. They already have made enough plans for the next decades.
