KÜHLING-GILLOT - QVINTERRA RIESLING TROCKEN 2020
This Riesling is full of juicy fruit. Light yellow, it flows into the glass with bright reflections and combines juicy fruits with cool minerality and finely spicy herbal notes on the nose. The aromas of yellow fruits such as pineapple and nectarine are also reflected on the palate and, underlined with saline notes, ensure rapid drinking. From cheese bread to chicken soup, it is the ideal all-rounder.
Five different wine villages and five different soil types inspired the creation of the Latin term Qvinterra. The name indicates that our estate owns vineyards in the five famous villages on the Rhine Terrace: Oppenheim, Nierstein, Nackenheim, Bodenheim, and Laubenheim.
ORIGIN Rheinhessen, Germany
Kuhling Gillot is located in the town of Bodenheim in the Nierstien area of the Rheinhessen wine-growing region of Germany. In its present form, it came about by marriage in 1970 when two of the regions oldest and most established wineries Kuhling and Gillot joined forces. Carolin Spanier-Gillot who has been responsible for winemaking since 2002 is regarded both at home and internationally as one of Germanys most talented winemakers and viticulturalists. In 2014 she took out Germanys winemaker of the year becoming the first female to take out this prestigious prize. What has made Caroline’s work so special is her dedication in the vineyard and experimentation in the cellar.
