K. Wechsler – Elegantly balanced sweet wines


Katharina Wechsler entered the family winery first 2009 and in a short time she became well-known with the wine lovers. She presented her very elegant, drinking-inspiring wines in the Munich wine shop Furore – including two sweet wines.

The winery Wechsler manages 17 hectares in Westhofen in the famous vine locations Steingrube, Kirchspiel and Morstein. The Riesling Schweisströpfchen 2015, which we have tasted, owes its name to a part of the Kirchspiel, in which the work on the calcareous, deep loam soils is always very sweat-producing.

The Riesling Benn Beerenauslese 2015 comes from a vineyard of the same name, a small monopol vineyard of 6.5 ha with loamy limestone soils, slightly below Kirchspiel and Morstein, planted with more than 50-year-old Riesling vines.

The calcareous clay soils of these locations provide wines with elegant, almost firm minerality, in which a slight saltiness pairs excellently with the fresh-fruity aromas.

This is also shown very well with the Schweisströpfchen 2015 which is very light-footed, despite its 108 grams of residual sugar.


Riesling Schweisströpfchen 2015
Fine herbs, citrus and exotic fruit, an ingenious combination of very spicy acidity, the sweet, fruity aromas and a certain saltiness, very good wine.

Riesling Benn Beerenauslese 2015
Exotic Fruits and some pomaceous fruit, pleasant notes of botrytis, concentrated, concentrated, delicate mineral notes, very nice balance of prominent acidity and fruit sweetness, very long finish, excellent wine. (Prices see Tasted wines)
