2018 Seehof Riesling Westhofen Kirchspiel Rheinhessen
Seehof Riesling Westhofener Kirchspiel comes from the outstanding location Kirchspiel in Westhofen. Kirchspiel faces the east and southeast, is based on pure limestone and interspersed with clay slate and marl. Here, particularly clear, cool and elegant Rieslings can be created. Rieslings like this one from Florian Fauths Seehof. Medium-strong, crystal-clear, firm, with a fine acidic structure, and herbal spice. But also with enough juicy fruitiness, which makes the wine very drinkable despite its cool elegance. White peach, lime, lemon peel, mint, light floral notes, some white pepper, and of course a good dose of minerality. This Riesling has a lot of potential and will mature well. Goes together with freshwater fish, but also with ginger-heavy dishes from the Vietnamese cuisine.
The Seehof winery in the famous Rhine-Hessian wine town of Westhofen is run by the Fauth family in the fifth generation. Fauth's son Florian is responsible for the winemaking and the style of the wines and father Ernst takes care of the care of the vineyards. Over a thousand years old, the Seehof itself is a small piece of cultural history. Fauth relies on fully ripe grapes, a strict selection, a lot of manual work, and a clear elaboration of the profile of the Westhofen locations such as Morstein and Kirchspiel. Of course, it's all about the terroir hero Riesling, but the Fauths also score highly with grape varieties like Scheurebe or Auxerrois, and with wines like the incredible Pinot Noir Rosé, which sells out quickly for this reason. We've been working with Florian's wines for a long time and can say with great certainty: They have always been good ambassadors for their Westhofen terroir, but are still getting better and better and are now clearly at the top of the region.
