Additional Information: Gunderloch is a thriving estate of approximately twenty-five hectares of vines in some of the top vineyards of the "Roter Hang" ("red slope") area in the Rheinhessen appellation. The estate has been practising organic for over five years. Fifth generation winemaker Johannes is currently considering certification and has become a driving force for leading the charge for studying and promoting chemical-free viticulture at the VDP. The average yield is held to 45 hl/ha, amongst the lowest in Germany, resulting in wines of high extraction and great quality, some of the finest in Germany.

One of the three grand cru Rieslings made at Gunderloch (Hipping, Pettenthal, Rothenberg). The Pettenthal Grand Cru site is located at the south end of the Rothenberg Vineyard, the steepest parcels of Gunderloch's estate are located here with slopes between 30 to 80%. Soil is red shale but also contains crushed stones and sand, this, combined with the colder fresher air and more shady site produce wines of lighter structure which tend to retain their freshness for many years, differing from the richer wines produced from the Rothenberg.
