“A prime vineyard site (‘erste lage’) in the village of Deidesheim is the source of this soul-stirring dry Riesling from Germany’s Pfalz region.”
You can probably translate “Paradiesgarten” without the help of Google, and this vineyard site lives up to its fantastical name. It is designated Erste Lage—the equivalent of a Burgundian Premier Cru—and the resulting wine is not just essential to developing your palate, but a crucial necessity to understanding the brilliance of elite dry German wine. “Paradiesgarten” is in the southwestern reaches of the village Deidesheim, and for decades, this loamy, sandstone vineyard was “slept-on”—but Von Winning has injected life and character into their bottlings. They’ve done this by farming organically, raising the wine on ambient yeasts, and subsequently aging it for 12 months in a combination of old 500- and 1200-liter barrels. Now with nearly two years of bottle aging, this 2016 has become a lively, layered, paradisiacal dry Riesling shot through with a mega-charge of finely crushed minerality.
