RieslingThe vineyards around Oppenheim are not influenced directly from the Rhine, here the heat stays and brings with it balanced ripeness. In comparison to Nierstein where the red slate is dominant, in Oppenheim the soil is very chalky. The cooler underground with the heat of the days brings a pretty damn near perfect suspense. The salty minerality of the chalky underground brings a vibrant feeling to the wine. This is the taste of Oppenheim Riesling when left to nature.
