The Wine Advocate

Über den Jahrgang 2019:

"From core vineyards of the red slope such as Schloss Schwabsburg, Hipping und Ölberg, the 2019 Nierstein Riesling Roter Schiefer is based on grapes that were small as peas and enormously concentrated, reports Felix Peters. Yields were only 24 hectoliters per hectare, which is less than half of a normal crop here. Picked on September 24 and 26, the 2019 firstling opens with a clear, intense and elegant bouquet of white seed fruits. Tight and fresh on the palate, this intense and structured Riesling is impressive and shows sustainably what an excellent winemaker Felix Peters is. The finish is compact and long and really impressive. This is one of the best values you can get from the red slope today. Highly recommended! Tasted in May 2020.

Almost exactly three years ago, in August 2017, when he was still winemaker at St. Antony in Nierstein, Felix Peters decided on a mountain tour to the Grossglockner (Austria) to found his own wine estate. "It should be small and only cultivate first-class vineyard sites," he said. His domain is called F. & F. Peters and sees itself as an artisan winery. "It has a small structure, so I can afford it and live my ideas here." But wine estate? The domain is rather an open garage in Nierstein with a small vaulted cellar underneath, which houses Peters' wines, tanks and barrels. The domain belongs exclusively to him, his wife and his children, and he is proud to be able to build it up in the first generation without anyone talking him into it. Previously, in case you have forgotten, Peters was the farmhand at St. Antony in Nierstein and has made the estate a top address in Rheinhessen over the years, not only for Riesling but also Pinot Noir and Blaufränkisch. Today Peters manages 4.2 hectares of vines in the best sites of the so-called Roter Hang (red slope) in Nierstein that includes Riesling crus such as Schloss Schwabsburg, Orbel, Hipping and Ölberg, Flörsheim-Dalsheim and Mölsheim (Schwarzer Herrgott, Zellertal). The first vintage of the Nierstein Paterberg Pinot Noir is growing right now.

Felix Peter's Pinot Noir style is built on the fruit, beautifully energetic and represents the irrepressible freshness from the cool Zellertal. The village of Mölsheim is located in southern Rheinhessen and offers limestone marl soils with a high content of clay and stones. "These are perfect conditions for Pinots with tension and liveliness," finds Peters, and in fact, his worst is still an excellent red wine.

Peters picks his Pinot Noir early and ferments the must with 40% to 50% whole clusters in open wooden vats from Burgundy. The cuvaison (the time the Pinot is on the skins/on the mash) is kept short. After pressing, the young wine is aged in 228-liter piéces from Burgundy for 12-14 months, with only 5% to 10% new wood. After the soutirage (racking), the wine is aged for another 2-3 months in stainless steel tanks. All of the Pinots are bottled unfiltered.

The Rieslings are sourced from the center of the Rote Hang in Nierstein yet in the cooler parts of this red clay slate formation from the Rotliegendes age. The first release of the Nierstein Roter Schiefer shows the distinctive mineral complexity of the unique terroir and makes me wonder how the crus will show, i.e. the Orbel, Felix Peter's heartbreak cru."
