Colour: Burnished Gold
Nose: Notes of pineapple, passionfruits , honey, honeycomb, kerosene, petrol with floral hints of chamomile and white flower.
Palate: Beautifully balanced sweetness, a gorgeous weight and full texture, glittering acidity. Rich and complex on the palate with hints of those classic old Riesling characteristics followed with flavours of orange peel, tangerine, dried apricot, cooked nectarine & orange marmalade. Good length with a minerally buttery finish. Fabulous. Can be drunk anytime but pairs especially well with an abundant cheeseboard.
Grape Varieties: 100% Riesling
History of Sybille Kuntz
While there are other women winemakers in Germany, including Eva Clusserath at Angsar Clusserath, Frau Knebel at Knebel, and Theresa Breur at Breuer’s Estate, none of the other talented women above have gained or hold complete control of their Estates’ Rieslings like Sybille Kuntz.
The Estate is in its 30th year, and has gained prominence and critical acclaim for their refined-drier style of Riesling. In 2011, Sybille and her husband Markus went from producing wines in their own dry style, to crafting a portfolio of six wines that represent the traditional quality of German viticulture, from Qualitätswein to Trockenbeerenauslese.
Sybille has spearheaded herself to the top of Riesling production in the traditional male-dominated German wine industry. In 2016, Weingut Sybille Kuntz was Demeter certified biodynamic. These wines are now recognised as some of the greatest dry Riesling in the world and there is no doubt that Sybille and Markus will continue to pioneer both in their region but also with what is one of the worlds greatest grape varieties.
