The name translates roughly as “As though it were a piece of me” and speaks of the emotional investment that Johannes Hasselbach has made now that he has taken over from his father at this historic estate and is readily putting his own stamp on the wines.

“My goal during my travels was to perfect my knowledge. I wanted to dedicate myself to the wine work outside the family winery. I wanted to discover how other people think and how they made their wine. During these formative years, I had many unique experiences and met many incredible people and had the chance to share their goals and dreams.”

This eye-poppingly exciting dry Riesling was harvested from a part of the Rothenberg vineyard that has been converted to biodynamics. The hand-harvested grapes spent some time macerating on skins and fine lees, which is unusual for Riesling, with some of them being fermented in clay amphorae. It’s so full of clean, bright, energetic fruit that it feels like it has been plugged into the national grid. It’s awash with citrus and white-fleshed stone fruit flavours. Only 12.5% alc, but bone dry and truly exhilarating. Drink now-2022.
