Winkeler Jesuitengarten is one of the warmest sites in the Rheingau that flowers and ripens very early. The easily warmed alluvial soil and gently sloped hills make for elegant and fruity wines with great minerality. This “Garden of the Jesuits” garners its name from the 1606 gift of the vineyard from the Archbishop of Mainz to the Jesuit College of Mainz, who held onto it until the late 18th Century.
Bright lemon yellow hues give way to an intensely penetrating nose of stone fruit, citrus preserves, and minerals. It is full-bodied & powerful, but at the same time fine & elegant. The citrusy acidity is well balanced with the body and texture of the wine.
Pairing: Excellent pairing with seafood, shellfish, poultry, wildfowl and braised meats.
