Schlossgut Diel 'Nahesteiner' Riesling Trocken, Nahe 2020

The Schlossgut Diel vineyards, castle and winery 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 in both terroir and differences in intensity achieved at various levels of ripeness. Organic viticulture is practiced and sustainability and health of 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.
