1 bottle 1986 Staatsweingüter Eltville Steinberger Riesling

Lot 1: 1 bottle 1986 Staatsweingüter Eltville Steinberger Riesling

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: One bottle Steinberger Riesling Produced by Staatsweingüter Eltville 1986 vintage Hattenheim, Rheingau/Germany Original filling quantity: 0.75 l Fill level: This lot comprises one 0.75 l bottle of Steinberger Riesling by the Staatsweingüter Eltville from the Rheingau region. The Rheingau is a wine-growing region in Germany that lies westwards of the elbow of the Rhine near Wiesbaden. In 1775 the very first Spätlese was pressed in the Rheingau from grapes infested with noble rot. The most popular type of grape in the Rheingau is the Riesling which takes up almost 80 % of the region's production. Especially top vineyard locations in the Rheingau produce high quality wines, which due to their complexity and high level of acid often need many years to mature.

The wines produced in the Rheingau are less spectacular but convince with their solid and reliable quality. The fill level is excellent (< 1 cm), especially given the wine's age.

These wines are the best and rarest wines that the vintner produced in that year. The amount normally lies at just a few boxes and at a maximum of 200-300 bottles for the international market. The Mosel region counts as one of the best wine growing regions worldwide. Up until 2006 the region was called Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, as it encompasses the nearby valleys of the rivers Saar and Ruwer. With over 5.300 hectares it is not only the largest area to harvest Riesling but also has some of the steepest vineyards in the world. The wine is usually sweet and fruity with a low percentage of alcohol; the best ones develop over decades. 1995 was a good year for the Mosel wine region, contrary to the other German wine regions, were the grape harvest began before the warm month of October. Especially sweet wines by the top winemakers, to which Haart can certainly be counted, are a true pleasure and will evolve over a long period of time. The fill level is excellent (< 2 cm), especially given the wine's age. The label is slightly soiled and the capsules are in impeccable condition.

The best of these develop over decades.The Wehlen sundial, the local mountain to the Prüm wine estate, is purely south-facing and provides potent heat reflection due to the extensive periods of direct sunlight it receives. 2008 was a good vintage for the Mosel region, despite the inconsistent weather. Only a small number of sweet wines were produced, however, those produced by top estates such J.J. Prüm were extraordinarily good. This young auction wine will develop over decades and must be stored properly.The fill levels are excellent (< 1 cm). The labels and capsules are in perfect condition.Johann Josef Prüm The legendary wines of the Johann Josef Prüm winery are produced today by Dr. Manfred Prüm and his daughter Katharina. The foundation of the family business is an impressive 22 hectares in the best locations of the Mittelmosel. The utmost care is given to the sloping vineyards, just as in the time of Johann Josef Prüm, because according to the family it is here that the magic happens. No outsider has ever been allowed to enter the legendary cellar. J. J. Prüm produces traditionally fruity wines with a moderate, natural residual sweetness. The high acidity, character and mineral quality of the wines make them appear rather dry. The wines can age unbelievably well, the balance is unparalleled and sensational! Many vintages deemed inferior by many critics developed over the years into true masterpieces. In any case, after several years of storage these wines belong to the greatest white wines in the world, despite (or rather because of) their inalterable identity and originality!

The weathered slate soil has a very high percentage of rock as well as ferrous, clayey components.The 2010 vintage is still too young to gauge. Especially Riesling wines are very promising and will develop wonderfully over the next few years.The fill levels are mostly excellent (23x < 1 cm), but the lower fill level is also normal for Riesling (< 4 cm). The labels and capsules are in perfect condition.

Gradually these types of wines truly established themselves, so much so that the Italian law for wine changed and some of these wines are now labeled with a place of origin. 1995 was a fine vintage in Tuscany and Piemont, leading to the creation of some great wines, the best of which are now at their peak, albeit in small numbers. This wine will taste especially fantastic from a magnum bottle as only the highest quality grapes are used. The fill levels are good (2x base of neck) and excellent (1x into neck), especially given the age of the wine. One of the rear labels is lightly soiled and somewhat damaged. The remaining labels and all capsules and original wooden cases are in perfect condition.
