Eva Fricke Lorcher Schlossberg Riesling Spatlese 2013

12% abv

Eva Fricke was for a long time winemaker at Leitz, one of the best known Rheingau wineries. She began her own project while still employed there, making 300 litres of wine in 2006. She’s now grown this to the point that it’s her main job (she left Leitz in 2011), and makes a range of Rieslings from her winery in Keidrich. Most of the sites Eva works with are in Lorch, but last year she got hold of some plots of vines in Keidrich. She rents vineyards, but has bought a couple too, and she works organically. – wineanorak.

Eva Fricke is a young woman who has firmly establishing herself as an ‘up and coming’ winemaker in the Rheingau. The Fricke holding is made up of 5ha, having recently purchased a parcel in Bodthental-Steinberg. Currently Eva produces one wine per vineyard and wants the terroir of each site to be expressed rather than the different sweetness levels being the main focus as in most German wines.

Growing up in the North of Germany to a family not involved in wine, Eva quickly discovered her love for wine and enrolled at the University of Geisenheim and studied Viticulture and Oenology. She completed placements at several wineries such as Schloss Johannisberg (Rheingau) Pepper Tree (Hunter Valley) + the prestigious Dominio de Pingus (Ribera del Duero) and finally for renowned Weingut Josef Leitz in Rüdesheim.

All her vines are grown on very steep slopes and range from 15 - 75 years in age which helps them produce naturally low yields of c. 35hl/ha. With her ecological approach to viticulture, it has allowed Eva to avoid reverting to conventional treatments (previously she practiced sustainable viticulture).
