Koster-Wolf Flonheimer Rothenpfad Riesling Kabinett Halbtrocken is an off-dry Reisling from the Rheinessen, the largest of the 13 German wine-growing regions. Two generations have been working together on the estate of Koster-Wolf, located in the village of Albig, for almost twenty years.
Today it is run by Bärbel Schlösser and her husband, winegrower’s son Claus Wolf. Claus took over from his parents, Heidrun and Manfred who took over from their parents in 1970s. Claus is the 11th generation of his family to run the estate. Barbara and Claus had met at the Geisenheim University of Applied Sciences where they were both studying viticulture and oenology. Today their sons, Maximilian and Ferdinand, also work in the family business and the estate comprises some 33 hectares. As a family they pride themselves on the quality and integrity of their estate wines. The emphasis in the vineyard management is placed on keeping the delicate balance between land, climate, plant and animals.
The riesling grapes for this wine come from the 2.5 hectare vineyard of Flonheimer Rothenpfad where some of the slopes have an incline of 60%.
