Family Ress has attracted attention in the 1970’s after reviving an old tradition: Every year renowned artists are asked to decorate one choice wine in a spectacular way; from these endeavours a complete edition was composed which has become note worthy internationally. Christian Ress, son of Stefan Ress, thus fifth generation has already joined the family business and is determined to continue the family’s tradition. Thus, within 5 generations, Balthasar Ress’ family business has developed into one of the leading wine growing firms of the region. Many of its wines are being exported into different countries of the world. Membership in the VDP gives proof that – in the cultivation of wines – these wine growers have submitted to high optional standards which surpass legal requirements. The “Hase”, or rabbit, is not only the namesake of famous vineyard sites, such as Hasensprung in the Rheingau. It is also a versatile creature that lives in a number of habitats ranging from tundra to grasslands to tropical forests. As a herbivore, it lives on grass, herbs, leaves, and blossoms. Last but not least, the rabbit is known for its high fertility rate. Hasensprung, versatile, grasslands, tropical, herbs, leaves, blossoms, fertility… Inspiration enough for the Ress family to create a wine in honor of the rabbit, White Rabbit Riesling.
A multifaceted Riesling. Redolent of grass and herbs. here and there, a hint of white blossoms and tropical fruit. Balanced and beautifully refreshing, this is delightfully aromatic and offers intense lime, honey and mineral aromas with a sweet, vibrant palate of nectarine and red apple that lingers on the finish.
