Given that, 40 million years ago, the Rheinhessen was a coral reef, it makes sense that its pure limestone soils are perfect for those winemakers looking to perfect German Chardonnay.  Brothers Tobias and Björn took over the estate in 2009 and increased Chardonnay plantings, using carefully selected French clones.  The wine sees 10% new oak and a mixture of vessels, from barriques to 1200 litre Stückfass.  Surprisingly lean and juicy, with brilliant delicacy of touch letting the lemon zest and savoury notes sing.  Drink with anything buttery or creamy, as you might a white Burgundy, but the delicacy of the oak here lends the wine to lighter dishes too.
