The 'Nonnenberg' vineyard is the jewel in the crown for Georg Breuer. This is their top wine, grown in Rauenthal; the most elevated wine growing village in the Rheingau. A unique combination of phillyte slate and gravel produce a powerful, refined expression of riesling, with notes of grapefruit, lemon peel and fragrant white blossom.
Very crystalline with delicate citrus-fruit and blossom notes, this sleek GG equivalent is very tightly-wound, but has great northerly freshness and precision. Long finish with a hint of grapefruit-pith bitterness and a lot of sparkling minerals. From organically grown grapes with Fair’n Green certification. Drinkable now, but better in 2022.
Winemaking dynamo Theresa Breuer took the reins at her family estate in Rheingau in 2004, aged 18 when her father passed away. The estate was founded in 1880 by Peter Breuer and owns some of the steepest, most prized vineyards in the Rheingau including several Grand Cru. Peter's grandson Bernhard was a true ambassador for Riesling, playing an important role in restoring its respectability in world markets after the lost Liebfraumilch years.
His motto was: "I wish to produce wines that make the specific characteristics of their origin visible". Theresa has continued to build on his legacy improving and innovating and has converted their vineyards to organics. Read our interview with Theresa and her stunning 2019 vintage on the blog
