Weingut Geil Rieslaner Beerenauslese 37.5cl

€32.95
Beguiling aromas with notes of ripe mirabelle plums and exotic fruits. Very juicy in the mouth, classy acidity, but also a lot of elegance, fine creaminess on the finish. Geil Gutsweine are unpretentious, everyday wonders with careful grape selection and extremely high standards. Geil is produced in the small town of Bechtheim, which lies in southern Rheinhessen, amid the softly rolling green hills of the Wonnegau rising from the Rhine plateau.

Description

In 1871 when Georg Geil, father of Johann Geil, bought the manor house at the heart of the estate, it stood close to the edge of the village. His purchase would lay the cornerstone for the Geil family's winegrowing tradition in Bechtheim. The estate would eventually come to bear the name of his son Johann Geil, who at age ten planted a chestnut tree in the garden. Its mighty branches stretch high over the property even today. Johann Geil also pushed to become one of the first producers to bottle wine in Bechtheim. His vision and entrepreneurial spirit weren't just limited to wine. He was also one of the founders of the Raiffeisenbank and the local commercial cooperative, and served for many years as the town's mayor as well. His dedication and wide-ranging service for the citizens and community of Bechtheim earned him the honorary title of Oekonomierat from the Grand Duke zu Hessen und bei Rhein. The estate is named in his honor!
