Weingut J. & H.A. Strub

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub
The Strub family has been winemakers in Germany's Rheinhessen region since 1710. When Walter Strub assumed proprietorship of the estate in 1986, he made the 11th generation of his family to produce fine Riesling wines of international repute from their vineyards around Nierstein. The Estate Walter Strub being born into a winemakers family spent his childhood in and around the vineyards. After two apprenticeships in other estates one in Baden and one in Rheinhessen, Walter went on to receive his degree in oenology from Germany's famous viticulturral institute in Geisenheim. Immediately after graduation in 1976, he returned to the family estate. In order to get some foreign experience, he spent three months as a volunteer at the Simi winery in Napa Valley, California. He and his wife Margit run the winery as a team. Their young children are also integrated. Sebastian (born in 1987) and Johannes (born in 1988) are already helping their father in the vineyards and Juliane (born in 1992) enjoys when she is allowed to taste what great wine daddy makes.
Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Niersteiner Paterberg Riesling Spätlese 2015

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Niersteiner Paterberg Riesling Spätlese 2015

The signature-flavors run to lemon grass and the minty herbs; mint itself, tarragon, Japanese green teas(Sencha and Gyokoru), spicy apples (Empires) and lime-zest; wintergreen too-you get the picture. Peachy it's not. But there's a kind of density of spice, as if set alight on the palate. These are iridescently scintillating ... more

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Niersteiner Brückchen Riesling Kabinett 2015

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Niersteiner Brückchen Riesling Kabinett 2015

The vineyard is a paradox: a warm micro-climate yet a cool soil (clay and limestone, slow to warm) gives ripe grapes with high acidity and low pH.  more

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Niersteiner Oelberg Riesling Feinherb Roter Schiefer 2015

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Niersteiner Oelberg Riesling Feinherb Roter Schiefer 2015

"Roter Schiefer" in this case is a brand-name and not a cadaster name. It's usually juicier than the Hipping, as it now is, and the RS balance is more seamless. The aroma is gorgeous, and the palate twirls among green and smoke, maple and pancetta. It has a whip of ... more

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Niersteiner Brückchen Riesling Kabinett 2016

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Niersteiner Brückchen Riesling Kabinett 2016

The "heart-piece" of the vineyard is almost pure limestone, and this is a salty and mineral wine; nice end-palate tang, with lovely balance both front-to-back and side-to-side; only free-run juice (Herzstück), so markedly clear and graceful, among the best vintages of this perennial favorite  more

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Niersteiner Paterberg Riesling Spätlese 2016

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Niersteiner Paterberg Riesling Spätlese 2016

50+ vines, grown on limestone in a high windy plateau, so there's never botrytis, which in turn permits a very long hang-time. Here's where a perfect cognate appears, because this wine smells and tastes exactly like lemon-grass. There's always a zippy length, but this '15 is really balanced on a ... more

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Soil To Soul Riesling 2016

Weingut J. & H.A. Strub Soil To Soul Riesling 2016

A good spicy vintage of this wine; a little brash-seeming but juicy and crisp; still knitting together but likely to be balanced on the zingy side.  more
