Dreissigacker Vintages

Complexity & depth through different vintages

Dreissigacker Vintages is the result of a fascinating process that begins in the vineyards around Bechtheim, continues in the cellars of the winery and culminates in an outstanding Riesling cuvée. A wine that demonstrates the diversity of flavours of the Riesling grape. Born from the idea of recreating the magic of the Champagne Grand Cuvée in a Riesling still wine. Achieved through assemblage, the method used by the great Champagne winemakers to harmoniously combine the complexity of different vintages in one bottle. Dreissigacker Vintages is a wine bottled with dedication and passion for Riesling and the constant pursuit of innovation and progress, with the first edition in spring 2018.

Six vintages, one Riesling


Six vintages in one Riesling Dreissigacker Vintages Edition IV is a blend of six Riesling vintages. Perfection begins in the vineyards with the careful harvesting of the most suitable lots at the optimum ripening stage. In the Dreissigacker cellars, the individual lots and vintages mature separately. Maturation is based on the knowledge gained from previous Vintages Editions to produce complex but well-matched base wines. Vintage Edition IV combines the vintages 2017 to 2022 to create a unique wine experience on the German wine market.

COMPLEX, INDEPENDENT, GRANDIOSE


Vintages Riesling is an exceptional creation that highlights the complexity and richness of Riesling. This wine does not reflect the individual style of any one winemaker, but is a celebration of the many facets of the Riesling grape. 

 What makes Vintage Riesling so special is the way in which it skilfully brings out all the characteristic qualities of Riesling. These are measured and yet present in every nuance. The harmonious balance between the different flavours and structures that Riesling can produce makes Vintages Riesling a unique wine. From fruity accents to mineral nuances, each vintage reflects the diversity and depth that Riesling has to offer. 

 A key feature of Vintages Riesling is the consistency of its style over the years. Despite annual variations, the characteristic style of the Vintages remains, with maturity over time giving each wine a harmonious finish. Time acts as a subtle refiner, refining the flavours and bringing them into perfect harmony.

IN PERFECTION


The idea of Vintages Riesling as a tribute to the potential of Riesling sets it apart from other wines and emphasises its uniqueness. It is not only about creating an excellent wine, but also about recognising and celebrating a grape variety that offers an impressive variety of flavour profiles and structures.

Vintages Riesling is a powerful example of how traditional values and innovative approaches can be combined to create something very special. A wine that not only pleases the palate, but also celebrates the deep connection with tradition and the boundless possibilities of Riesling.
