Weingut Bergdolt – Reif & Nett

Germany

Another member of the avant-garde group of talented, visionary German winemakers, Christian Nett represents the fifth generation in this small family estate located in the heart of the Pfalz. Due to its almost Mediterranean climate, this wine region also produces many exotic fruits that are normally not associated with Germany. The family vineyards are cultivated with the utmost respect for the environment, avoiding the use of harmful herbicides and pesticides. Only the best and healthiest grapes are selected to produce the estate wines. We came across this grower in a restaurant in downtown Frankfurt, near the financial district, featuring international cuisine made fresh each day from local produce and meats. Christian’s wines came highly recommended by the restaurant’s owner, and it proved to be a great recommendation indeed. A subsequent visit to the winery and meeting with Christian confirmed the initial impression.

Wines

Nett Tradition Scheurebe Trocken · Profile

The Scheurebe was created in 1916 by Dr. Scheu who at that time was the Director of a grape breeding institute in Germany. He crossed Riesling with an unknown wild wine for the purpose of developing a superior version of Silvaner, with more aroma and greater resistance to frost. When properly cultivated by reducing yields, Scheurebe can deliver nice aromatic, dry wines. Christian’s wine displays wonderful aromas of citrus and white currants, balanced by a refreshing acidity. A lower alcohol content compared to other dry white wines makes it a refreshing summer beverage.

Nett Tradition Riesling Trocken · Pairing

A great accompaniment to the rustic dishes that are typical for the Pfalz such as pork belly with sauerkraut or liver dumplings. It enjoys the company of Flammkuchen and Quiche from the neighbouring region Alsace. It elevates simple dishes like dark rye bread with liver sausage and mustard.

 

Nett Edition Sauvignon Blanc Trocken · Profile

For several years starting at the beginning of this millennium, Sauvignon Blanc enjoyed a great popularity in the growing region Pfalz. It turned out, however that this grape variety delivered inconsistent results in this particular terroir. Only a handful of growers are able to deliver premium results on a consistent basis, and Christian Nett is one of them. His Edition Sauvignon Blanc displays an intriguing aroma of gooseberry, complemented by spicy undertones. A wine with great depth and well-balanced acidity. It is somewhat reminiscent of the wines from Sancerre. While it is absolutely delightful now, this wine has great cellaring potential.

This Sauvignon Blanc is a very versatile food pairing wine. Oysters, both raw and baked, mussels in a white wine sauce or served as moules frîtes, grilled fish, Dover sole, and guinea fowl are just a few suggestions that will match this elegant wine. Also great with a seafood paella.

Nett Edition Riesling Trocken · Profile

A truly outstanding representative of a Pfalz Riesling Dry. Reduced yields and a careful aging on fine lees in large oak barrels result in a wine with a noble, elegant structure, complemented by fine citrus notes and minerality.

This wine shows the versatility of Riesling as a food pairing wine. It can be served with uncomplicated dishes such as tapas with Serrano or Parma ham, fresh cheese with herbs and baguette, but also with flavourful preparations such as baked oysters, baked halibut, Dover sole, and roasted poultry.

Nett Edition Gewürztraminer Trocken · Profile

In order to craft a harmonious dry Gewürztraminer it requires skill and vision. Christian succeeded with his dry interpretation of this very eccentric and aromatic grape variety. A beautiful nose of rose petals, ripe yellow fruit, and pear with elegance and smooth acidity. A dry Gewürztraminer that is a testament to the skill of the grower. It delivers all the exotic notes that we associate with this grape variety while inviting us to enjoy another glass with its clean and refreshing finish. Remarkable.
