The perfect wine for a long hot weekend, this Kabinett Riesling (slightly fruity, but not sweet) is great value.  Wine Enthusiast describes it best:

“Hints of honey and caramel lend warmth to this ripe, unusually robust kabinett. Voluptuous body and haulting acidity augment its bold, expansive mouthfeel. A fringe of astringency lends some structure to the finish.”

Louis Guntrum was established in 1648, and since 2003 has been owned and operated by Louis Konstantin Guntrum, who is the 11th generation of the Guntrum family to make wine. During the French Revolution, the Guntrum family fled across the Rhine river and temporarily relocated in Bensheim. In 1909, Louis Guntrum returned to Nierstein and founded the Louis Guntrum winery as it is known today. In February 1945, during World War II, U.S.General Patton occupied the winery and the family mansion, having crossed the Rhein river directly at the Louis Guntrum estate. The current generation is focused on producing high-quality wines that are produced with passion and rooted in history.
