Pale yellow color with golden reflections; quite accessible nose; yellow fruits such as apple and pineapple predominate; good pressence and juiciness at the palate. Light minerality; expansive and charming. The mineral structure slightly melts in the background and then gains clarity. Very long resonance of the dryness with fresh, invigorating power. Makes you long for more! (Dathan, 29 July 2010)

This estate was established in 1641. Today the two brothers Andreas and Bernd Spreitzer run this winery. 97% of their production consists of Riesling wines. Spreitzer is among the six best estates in the whole Rheingau region. The estate is known for its perfect microclimate for wine growing. The vineyards are located directly on the shore of the Rhine at the only west-facing bend on the entire route of the river.
