Young Rivaner vines on deep clay soils in KREUZNACHER ROSENBERG provide the grapes for our fresh, dry Rivaner and our sweet Müller-Thurgau wines.
Yield reduction and good ventilation of the grapes through defoliation ensure a distinctive aroma, that is typical for the grape variety.
In recent years the variety Rivaner has made a new development:
By restricting the yield, one can produce wines that are lively and not complicated.
These wines can be trend wines and yet not act uniformly. Indicator is the fine nutmeg aroma and floral fragrance;
the acidity is mild with a certain elegance. The wine should be drunk young.
The wines of the Müller-Thurgau are sweet, young filled with a fine nutmeg bouquet and harmonious acid, are particularly fresh and lively.
Semi-dry or dry wines are called Rivaner and are invigorating fresh wines and pleasant accompaniment to food.
The Müller-Thurgau grape grown in 1882 by Prof. Dr. H. Muller, a Swiss from Thurgau, at the School Geisenheim. As Müller 1891 moved to Wädenswil near Zurich, he took from Geisenheim 150 intersections as cuttings with. Among these we saw the Vine no. 58 to be particularly worthy. It has long been thought, Müller-Thurgau were a cross between Riesling and Sylvaner. Genetic analysis have shown that not the Silvaner, but the variety Chasselas is the crossing partner of the Riesling. In 1918, the Müller-Thurgau grape came back to Germany.
