Koehler-Ruprecht is known for broad, rich and minerally Rieslings, the historic estate has taken strides in the past decade or so to become one of the Pflaz's most esteemed estates and were making trocken (dry) styles before it was cool.
Steinacker translates to the "stony acre,” a sandstone+loess site characterized by pebbly rocks. Its borders were over-expanded for political purposes (like many famous sites) by the 1971 law, but Koehler-Ruprecht owns the original, high-quality heart of it. Spontaneously fermented on natural yeast and aged exclusively instuck(1200L) andhalbstuck(600L) = large old barrels.
Vivacious and intensely delicious with a ramrod-straight spine and terrific chalk/talc mineral aromas that follow through on the palate.
