Grapes for the 'Am Lumpen' wines are carefully selected from the steepest parts of the Escherndorfer Lump vineyard - a directly south-facing precipitous slope with vines that are over 30 years old. This 'Am Lumpen' site was first referenced in 1655, and is Horst Sauer's most premium 'Grosse Lage' site - the classification for the very best German vineyards. The terroir produces long lived wines with an unmistakeable concentration of fruit.
This is very cool, very authoritative, very click-click Riesling with a core of lime, peach, hay and maybe a suggestion of fresh nuts around the edges, and it’s undoubtedly smart and fine and you’re happy… then comes this incredible ‘swell’, this sense of barely restrained energy, this 'Shove’! It moves the wine to a different place and seems to both increase its scale and slice you in two at the same time. It’s surely the voice of the vineyard.
The bright acidity will stand up to Thai or Indian cuisine, or match with roast pork and crackling.
