Heinrichshof, Schlossberg 2014
The rank outsider among our Outstanding producers, and for most of us a discovery, the Heinrichshof in Zeltingen is a small (6ha) family estate now run by Peter and Ulrich Griebeler, whose grapes are chiefly grown on the steep slopes of the Zeltinger Schlossberg and Sonnenuhr (sundial). The wines are Peter’s domain. He trained with Armin Diel in the Nahe and Fritz Haag nearer home. The estate focuses on dry wines, and 2014 was its first vintage: bravo!
