Oestricher Lenchen is a revered dessert wine site which is classified as VDP-Grosse Lage (Grand Cru), and rightfully so. It is notorious for one of the highest must weight wines to be produced in German history, a 1920 Trockenbeerenauslese dessert wine. The surrounding stone walls soak up the daytime warmth of the sun and radiate it out at night. Additionally the surrounding rose gardens add a distinctive perfume note to the wines.
Deep pure gold color. Fine maturity paired with racy acidity which gives an incredible freshness to the wine. Aromas of dried peaches, mandarins, caramel and white nougat with a delicate spicy note. The perfect integrated acidity make its framework look almost youthful. Very complex with a long finish.
Pairings: Goes seamlessly with seared foie gras, and also baked fruit desserts such as baked apples, apricot cake, peach turnovers.
Wegeler is a family-run estate with a deep sense of history and tradition. For four generations now, they have shared the same passion for Riesling, which is cultivated in 100% of their vineyards along the Rhine and the Mosel river banks.

The global reputation of the German white wine community has its roots in the Rheingau, home to both the wine-making estate of Schloss Johannisberg and the village of Hochheim. Both names have been adapted around the world as synonyms for Riesling (such as Johannisberg Riesling and Hock).
The Rheingau is one of the most geographically specific wine regions on the planet with the Rhine (Rhein) River running on the south side and the Taunus mountains along the north. It is an area best known for its small viticultural sites, amazing landscape and perfect microclimate for the delicate Riesling and Pinot Noir grape varietals.
