Kauer Riesling & TORNADO
Our Kauer Riesling and Spätburgunder Weißherbst TORNADO exemplify our philosophy of quality. The Riesling grapes come mainly from Beulsberg in Urbar. It is an uncomplicated fine fruity dry Riesling and is available most years in Kabinett quality. With a maximum of 12% alcohol, it is capable of providing much enjoyment.
Our TORNADO, a product of one of nature’s bad moods, is a Spätburgunder from the Weinhelle lightly pressed after only brief skin contact. The real tornado that raged through Oberwesel on 27 July 2005 almost completely devastated the harvest. The few surviving Spätburgunder grapes were only suitable for producing a Weißherbst – a red wine was out of the question. Defiantly we called that meagre remainder wine TORNADO 27/07. Unexpectedly, it was so well received that we have made a TORNADO every year since then – but now using fully ripe, healthy grapes.
