One of the very few wines with sweetness produced at Koehler-Ruprecht---and a predictably fine one! Steinacker translates to the "stony acre,” a sandstone+loess site characterized by pebbly rocks. Its borders were over-expanded for political purposes (like many famous sites) by the 1971 law, but Koehler-Ruprecht owns the original, high-quality heart of it. Spontaneously fermented on natural yeast and aged exclusively in stuck (1200L) and halbstuck (600L) = large old barrels. Fruity and lightly sweet, but keenly balanced between 25 and 30g/l RS in any given year. Splendid energy here, heartier and firmer than a Mosel Kab but still bright, easy-drinking, low alcohol Riesling in a classic vein---at a remarkably modest price!
