Riesling is a unique grape variety which thrives in Germany’s cool climate, producing a range of aromas and styles as a reflection of its origin. This “sense of place” is often referred to as being the result of terroir interactions – the synergy between the soil and the climate, the weather, the water supply and man’s influence in vineyard and winery. The winemakers at Reh Kendermann pay tribute to the influence in particular of the different soils on the character and taste of their Riesling wines.
Loess (German: Löss) is a type of fertile, wind-blown soil which is rich in minerals. Its porous structure makes it ideal for viticulture and Riesling, in particular, thrives on this type of soil, producing very open, aromatic wines.
