Vineyard: Situated on the outskirts of Fort, in the immediate vicinity of Kirchenstück and Ungeheuer, the Jesuitengarten is one od the best vineyards on the Palatinate due to its extremely high mineral content. The site is famous for its fine and elegant wines with high complexity.
The name is derived from properties of the Jesuit monastery of Neustadt an Der Weinstrasse. In 1793 the Jordan family bought the whole vineyard.
Wine: The grapes come from the oldest plots of the Jesuit garden and are selectively harvested in several passes. Great importance is attached gently and the must is pre-clarified by sedimentation. Fermentation takes place for the most part in traditional wooden barrels with yeasts from the vineyard.
Pome fruit, citrus fruits, herbal spice and light smokiness characterise the aroma of the Jesuitengarten GG.
On the palate and elegant wine with wonderful balance, typical minerality and some saltiness. This Riesling harmonises wonderfully with shellfish, mussels, fish and white meat, as well as with medium-strong vegetable dishes and discreetly spicy cuisine.
The Jesuitengarten will only reach its optimal drinking maturity in 5-10 years and will keep it for long time.
