Description

Gunderloch is one of Rheinhessen's top producers.

Brought to prominence by the late, great Fritz Hasselbach, Fritz' legacy today is carried on by his thoughtful and incisive son, Johannes.

This wine is the creation of Johannes and was named for his late father. It's insane value in the context of German Riesling.

It's juicy, succulent, and gives that combination of sweet, jellied lime and crunchy acid that only the Germans can do.

If you want a no-brainer Riesling that you can rip the top off any night of the week, Fritz's Riesling is near impossible to go past.

Fritz's Riesling grows in a very small and special part of Rheinhessen called the Roter Hang, a name meaning "red hill" due to its red-slate soils. The Roter Hang is located between the village of Nackenheim and the village of Nierstein, 20km south of the city of Mainz. The red colour comes from a high proportion of minerals and iron in the soil.

The vineyards are very close to the river Rhine, face south-east and they have steep slopes. The combination of those four factors - the red slate soil, the proximity to the river, the exposure to the sun and the steepness of the vineyards - are perfect for producing wonderful ripeness. The wine shows lovely stone fruit, fresh natural acidity, spice and aromatic lift. Dry, fresh and full of character.

Region: Rheinhessen, Germany

    Germans know what they're doing

    Distinctive sherbetty germanic acid balancing the lushness and drive of the fruit. Fantastic value.

    Fantastic value!

    This has been one of my favourite value-buys on Different Drop. A crisp and delicious German riesling that puts many more expensive rieslings to shame. It's well balanced, though leans towards the dryer end of the spectrum. Perfect midweek drop, and I even whipped it out at a picnic last weekend and it worked a charm.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
