Seckinger Riesling Deidesheim am Kirchberg 2020 *Biodynamic


The Riesling am Kirchenberg is a quiet, reductive and subdued representative on the nose. A very high extract content is reflected in the glass, characterized by restrained fruit and an almost balsamic spiciness of sage tea, but also apple and some orange blossom. In general, it is a bit more flowery and fragrant than its Riesling colleagues from the same family.
The acid isn’t quite as sharp here, though. Salty popcorn, a minerality like seawater and almost iodic like an oyster can be felt on the palate. As with a good vinaigrette, the acidity and sweetness of the extract are well balanced. A stringent, extremely lively acidity and mineral saltiness are becoming more and more prevalent.

Winery Profile:
Founded In 2012, by brothers Philipp (vineyard), Jonas (cellar) and Lukas (organisation) who work hand in hand organically cultivate 14 hectares of vineyards, having completed their conversion to Biodynamic in 2018. All wines are fermented spontaneously, mostly in large and small wooden barrels completely without technical wine treatment agents. The youngest winery in Niederkirchen, the brothers grow Riesling, Weißburgunder, Grauburgunder and Spätburgunder with sustainability and respect for the land in the forefront of their production. Using spontaneous fermentation and minimal intervention, Seckinger shows an exciting character to the varieties. ‘We completely do without technical wine treatment agents, as we rely on the independence of our wines.’. In 2019, Jonas Seckinger, who produced his first wine at 17 years old whilst experimenting with an old wooden press in his parents garage, was nominated as newcomer of the year.
