Rheinhessen | Bechtheim

Jochen Dreissigacker has the extraordinary privilege of calling first-class holdings in Geyersberg, Kirchspiel, and Morstein his own. Jochen’s wines offer a sharply focused lens onto the specificity of Rheinhessen’s terroirs while also being singular statements of personality. They are the product of thoughtful, organic farming combined with patient, deliberate cellar work. The results are wines of depth and concentration, with scintillating tension among fruit, ripe acidity, and mineral structure, built to age. Their appeal to trocken devotees will be obvious. Their appeal at the table will be, too.

Dreissigacker 2015 Morstein Riesling Grosse Lage

Jochen’s vines here are 40 years-old, grown on pure limestone subsoil topped with heavy clay and marl. The first documented mention of the site dates from 1282 and is considered by most to be the top site in Westhofen. Fermented and aged predominately in neutral barrel, this wine has more power than the Kirchspiel and more focus than the Geyersberg; it is stony and emits aromas of orange citrus and roasted caraway seeds.
