Producer: Weingut Anton Finkenauer
In 1925 the winery of Anton and Carl Finkenauer was divided as the two brothers chose to follow their own direction. Since then, there have been two wineries with the same name situated in close proximity. Weingut Anton Finkenauer is a family company, which today is managed by Hans-Anton Finkenauer, offering well-made and attractively priced wines with an annual volume of 60,000 bottles. The Anton Finkenauer estate comprises approximately nine hectares of vineyard in the Kreuznach locations of Brückes, Forst, Hinkelstein, Kahlenberg, Osterhöll and Rosenberg. 60% of the vineyard is planted with Riesling; the remainder is planted with Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Scheurebe and Pinot Blanc.
The Nahe region is one of the smaller German wine regions, named after the Nahe River which joins the Rhein at Bingen. Legal status for Nahe only came with the 1971 German wine law. The Nahe is bordered by the Mosel region, famed for its precise, sometimes delicate Rieslings; on the other is the Rheingau, known for more powerful examples. The region boasts a wide variety of soil types which allow it to offer delicate complexity.
The wonderful balance between sugar and acidity found in this wine makes it a good example of the wines from the Nahe region. A young, dry, streamlined and fruity wine with just a hint of refreshing spritz on the palate.
