The Maringer-Reif Estate
Maringer-Reif, of the village of Piesport, produces some of Germany’s finest Rieslings. Celler Master Jorg Matheus, Geisenhim graduate, part of a 400 year family history of producing wines, assures the exceptional quality of every bottle, every glass.
Wines are produced using slow fermentation methods, stainless steel tanks, from grapes hand picked from low yield vineyards. All grapes are grown in Devonian slate.
This region of the Middle Mosel has been a center of wine production since early Roman times. The famous Piesporter vineyards, Goldtropfchen, Treppchen, Michelsberg along with Dhroner Hofberger and Wintricher Ohligsberg produce wines of breathtaking complexity.
Maringer-Reif was established in 1990, bought by the Matheus family in 2009.
Total acreage 11 hectares
Annual production 7000 cases
Varieties: Riesling 50%, Pinot Noir 15 %, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Intense garnet color. Black cherry and raspberry aromas. The mouth is full and persistent with a good structure.
Lasting but soft, creamy, full of scent of dried fruits.
Ideal with boiled, roasted and grilled meat.
"Aromas of ripe raspberry jam, plum, menthol and baking spice lead the nose on this bold red. The dense palate delivers raisin, dried black cherry and licorice alongside assertive, close-grained tannins that grip the finish.- Kerin O'Keefe"
