Established in 1723 Weingut Tesch is one of Germany’s most exciting producers, creating deliciously dry Riesling from five top sites in the Nahe. Turning his back on tradition Martin Tesch creates great wines for a new generation of wine lovers. Martin Tesch has abandoned conventional German wine labelling and colour codes each bottling of his dry Rieslings, which often undergo malolactic fermentation, to distinguish the different soil types that inspired them.
The Krone vineyard in the town of Laubenheim lies directly next to the Löhrer Berg. The steep southeast slope of the Krone is characterized by a mix of light and coarse soils from decalcified loess and weathered sandstone that gives its Rieslings a highly complex character. Dramatic temperature extremes due to the exposure to the westerly winds, most pronounced at night, give the wine a somewhat edgy disposition with a pronounced citrus aroma.
