About the wine.
This wine has the elegance of the Großes Gewex classification on the palate. It has aromas of ripe apples, pears, lemongrass and a hint of green tea. It is characterized by a delicate and fine acidity, expressing balance and complexity, and a surprisingly long finish. Serve with grilled pork or poultry, shrimp, spicy dishes, cured ham or salami.
Firmly ripe grapes are carefully brought to the cellar, briefly crushed, and after several hours of skin contact, pressed. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at 16-19°C. Natural yeasts are mainly used. After several months of fermentation with fine yeasts, the wine is filtered and bottled.
The bright light yellow color sparkles in the glass.
About the winery.
The eighth oldest winery in the world, Carthoiserhof is a fairytale-looking winery located overlooking the majestic Louver Valley. 1335, Elector Balduin of Luxembourg established a monastery for the monks of the Carthusian Order. In 1335, Luxembourg's Elector Balduin founded a monastery for the Carthusian monks, and the winery has been handed down through seven generations of the Carthoiserhof family. The leading gourmet magazine Gault & Millau has awarded the 2019 Rising Star Award to Kaltwieserhof, whose VDP-rated Rieslings have won the hearts of the judges and earned this venerable award. He said that he was convinced once again of the greatness of the region's wonderful terroir and the tradition of Riesling, and decided to pursue quality further.
o A winery that looks like a castle in the woods from a fairy tale
Since its establishment in 1811, the Kaltwieserhof has been passed down from generation to generation within the family. The current owner, Alberto Böhler, is the seventh generation of the Leonardi/Rautenstrauch/Tyrell/Böhler family to keep the international reputation of the Kaltwieserhof alive for the past 200 years. Few companies have such a long history. There are only 80 companies in the world that are older than Kalthäuserhof, and only seven of them are in wine-producing regions.
Historic wineries are home to many old vintages.
Each Kaltwieserhof wine has a single neck label (the trademark small flag) on the bottle.
Legend has it that Carl Wilhelm Lautenstrauch preferred to use the fresh spring water from Eitersbach, which runs right by his garden pavilion, to chill his wines. However, the labels on the bellies of the bottles would get wet and come off, making it difficult to tell which bottle contained which wine, which was always a problem, so he decided to put the labels only on the banderole at the neck so that the labels could be seen even while the wine was being chilled.
The trademark small flag shows the coat of arms of the Kartheuserhof and its symbol, the monkey. The animal was placed in the coat of arms by St. Bruno of Cologne, the founder of the Carthusian order. St. Bruno was called to the papacy in the 11th century, but he did not feel at home in the Eternal City and eventually settled in Calabria, where he met and came to revere the monkey.

The Devonian slate in the soil plays an important role in the strong mineral content. As the slate weathers, it releases iron minerals because it is a very soft and heat retaining material. In the process, the vine absorbs important elements such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, as well as many other trace elements, which are passed on to the grapes in high concentrations. The soil of the Kalthäuserhof contains clay veins in addition to slate, which allows it to retain water efficiently.
Culthäuserhof wines have a great variety of aromas, ranging from tropical fruits to pronounced minerality. This is due to the balance of elements that our vines need to thrive.
