The Königsfels (‘King’s fields’) is a single vineyard site solely owned by the Anheuser family. It sits on the upper Nahe river where it’s incredibly steep rocky slopes made of porphyry (a type of igneous) rock makes viticulture incredibly challenging, but very rewarding as its southerly slope as well as moderating temperature and reflective powers of the river make complex, concentrated wines.
A plush style, with plenty of white fruit flavors and a good backbone of acidity. Ripe melon and spice fill the juicy finish.
A perfect match for strong Indian and Asian spiced dishes. Also fantastic with a spiced duck leg, dishes with acidic sauces, roasted vegetables, and soft cheeses.
