DR. VON BASSERMANN-JORDAN Forster Ungeheuer Ziegler Riesling-Trocken, Pfalz

Bassermann-Jordan, with origins going back to 1718, is one of the leading producers of Germany’s Pfalz (or Palatinate) region, based in Deidesheim, with excellent vineyard holdings there and in the neighbouring villages of Forst, Ruppertsberg, Wachenheim, Königsbach and Niederkirchen.

Until 1971, when it was incorporated into Ungeheuer, Ziegler was a vineyard in its own right. In 2012 Bassermann-Jordan expanded the Ziegler vineyard so they could continue to make a wine that shows clearly how different Ziegler and Ungeheuer wines can be.

Hand-picked grapes are pressed, clarified and fermented naturally in a large, old, oak vat. The wine remains on lees for up to five months before bottling. The nose shows both floral and fruit notes and the palate typically has a firm body with plenty of minerality and a long finish. Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years.

Region Pfalz

The Pfalz is a region of Germany that produces the largest volume of wine due to its warm summer climate and higher cropping vines grown on rolling hills and plains. The region runs parallel to the Rhine river and has 22,00 ha of vineyards spanning 80 km with a wide range of soil types. While it produces a high volume of everyday Qualitätswein “Liebfraumilch” style wines, the Pfalz also produces high quality Riesling that is typically full bodied and dry with ripe fruit characters and signature chalky minerality. In addition to Riesling, the Pfalz also has significant plantings of Müller-Thurgau, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) and the popular German red variety Dornfelder.

Winery DR. VON BASSERMANN-JORDAN

Bassermann-Jordan’s vineayards include some of the most notable winegrowing sites in the Pfalz. Covering more than 49 ha, their vineyard locations in Forst, Deidesheim and Ruppertsberg include 20 different single vineyard sites. A third of these vineyards are classified Grand Cru such as Hohenmorgen, Pechstein, and Jesuitengarten. These vineyards are organically farmed and winemaker Ulrich Mell focuses on spontaneous fermentation without artificial additives prior to lees ageing. In 1718, Pierre Jordan purchased the family's first vineyards in Pfalz. 65 years later, Johann-Peter Jordan built the winery in Deidesheim. Quality is a Jordan family tradition. Around 1800, Andreas Jordan was a part of the avant-garde of growers changed the face of viticulture in the Pfalz by planting single varieties by the vineyard. He was also one of the first winemakers to vinify each vineyard separately. Later, in 1883, marriage between the Bassermann and Jordan families. Today, the estat

Since 2002, winemaker Ulrich Mell has been committed to honouring the Bassermann-Jordan pursuit of quality in the Pfalz.
