Weingut Heymann-Löwenstein

Reinhard Löwenstein is one of the most striking and respected winemakers in Germany. The author of the book Terroir: Weinkultur und Weingenuss in einer globals Welt, produces impressive wines on its steep terrace vineyards. He presents his wines as a philosopher, giving almost poetic descriptions of his top vineyards. He is one of the specialists in the field of German wines. The slate soil, low yields and generally late harvest produce intense Rieslings that can be used for gastronomic purposes. The wines are bottled in beautiful, dark blue-green bottles and combine very well with Eastern dishes, among other things.

Heymann-Löwenstein Uhlen Laubach Grosses Gewächs

On the Uhlen, the vineyards lie like an amphitheater and catch every ray of sunshine. The Uhlen Laubach consists of gray slate with an abundance of embedded fossils. The high lime content of the many shells and corals can be seen in the wine. Lots of ripe fruit, fine minerality, lots of juice, good structure and concentration, long lasting finale. Vinification All wines undergo the same vinification: fermentation with wild yeast cells, 10 months aging in stainless steel tanks and wood, no clearance.

The wines all have an excellent balance between the basic components of a wine: sugar, acid, alcohol and phenols. The balance will not be perfect at a young age; this is only achieved with a minimum of 2 years of patience with dry wines.

More time is needed for sweet wines: 10 years with Auslese, 15 years with Auslese with a golden capsule, 20 years and more with Beerenauslese and Trockenbeerenauslese. The wines, dry or sweet, from the "Schieferterrassen" mature a little faster than those from "single vineyards".

Wine - Food pairing

Especially recommended with white sea fish with asparagus - preferably no pure white, but asparagus with a purple or green head, green asparagus or even better: ear of corn asparagus! Also try with zander and sauerkraut.
