Weingut Langwerth von Simmern

The history of the Barons Langwerth von Simmern at the Rheingau dates back to the year 1464, when Johann Langwerth von Simmern received 32 2/3 Morgen (approx. 25 acres) of "Hattenheimer Mannberg" as a reward for his services as chancellor to Duke Ludwig von Pfalz-Zweibrücken. In 1472, after the acquisiton of Castle Hattenheim, the family finally made the Rheingau their home. After buying Stockheimer Hof in 1711, the family moved to Eltville, the cultural centre of the Rheingau. At Stockheimer Hof, the mother of Baron vom Stein was born in 1721. The acquisiton of Lichtenstern Hof in 1753 laid the foundations for the current estate. The two buildings lend the modern Langwerther Hof its character and enclose the Estate Park inside. Today, they continue to take the century-long tradition of the production of top-quality wines from world-famous vineyards as both incentive and obligation to concentrate their efforts on maintaining the established standards and to introduce changes only with utmost care.

Tasting Notes

A very pretty bouquet oozing spicy baked cinnamon apples and stone fruits. On the palate this wine is super zingy almost razor blade. Sweet and spicy apple flavours with a little honey, some residual sweetness but the acidity gives a crisp, mouthfeel.

Food Matches

Try this wine with grilled citrus shrimp with vegetable slaw.
