Schlossgut Diel 'Nahesteiner' Riesling Kabinett, Nahe 2021

The Schlossgut Diel vineyards, castle, and wineries are of great historical significance. The winery was purchased by the Diel family in 1802; today the winery is owned by Armin Diel and his daughter and winemaker Caroline Diel. Caroline’s styles are a study of both terroir and differences in intensity achieved at various levels of ripeness. Organic viticulture is practiced and sustainability and the health of the soil is the primary goal The combination of great vineyard sites, dedicated vineyard management, and meticulous winemaking has led the winery to receive continued acclaim. The wines scrupulously define themselves: the style changes as the vintage dictates but the wines are always clear, sophisticated, and balanced.

  • Winemaker: Caroline Diel
  • Variety: Riesling (Dry)
  • Farming: Organic and Sustainable (not certified)
  • Terroir: With nearly ten acres (4 ha) Schlossgut Diel is by far the largest owner of this legendary steep site. One explanation of the name is that miners searched for gold here in the 17th century. Another is that the wines made from this site are worth their weight in gold. The key to success is in the soil. A thin layer of clay over bedrock provides power, elegance and depth to the wines.
  • Harvest: Manual, multi-pass harvest of meticulously selected grapes from estate vineyards. 
  • Vinification: Gentle pressing, followed by spontaneous fermentation and extended aging in traditional wood barrels sourced from local oak and stainless steel tanks.
  • Scores: 93 points, James Suckling
