Langwerth von Simmern Rheingau
The number of good estates in the Rheingau is on the increase and often, as here, it is due to the revival of a famous estate. Dating back to 1464, Langwerth von Simmern has enjoyed periods of much acclaim and quality has come roaring back in the last 10 years. The 31.5 ha of vineyards include many of the Rheingau’s most outstanding sites.
Even Kabinett-level wines show off the class of vineyards such as Rauenthaler Baiken, Hattenheimer Nussbrunnen and Erbacher Marcobrunn. The intensity, definition, vibrancy and splendid expression make for excellent drinking whether the wines are young or aged. A Blaukapsel (blue capsule) Riesling Spätlese is a special selection from Hattenheimer Mannberg (90% ownership) which is also the source of an Erste Lage (Erstes Gewächs) bottling.
