"I think Riesling, and German examples in particular are the most misunderstood and unappreciated Old World wines in the market. This is a great medium dry wine from Fritz Hasselbach and team," Smith says. "It is not ostensibly sweet, with no more apparent RS than many hyper commercial “Pinot Grigio” and significantly drier than White Zinfandel. It is versatile refreshing wine with great acidity and minerality. It is well suited to simple enjoyment, with appetizers or the appropriate entrée."
Jean Baptiste Gunderloch is he protagonist in Carl Zuckmayer´s story "Der fröhliche Weinberg" (the joly vineyard). The wine has been named after him.
Jean Baptiste is our only classical medium dry Kabinett wine. It is typical for the red soil of our vineyards.
