The name derives from ancient Romans who with their legions and cavalry passed through this area (Reiter = rider; Pfad = path). Reiterpfad is located at the foot of the Haardt in Ruppertsberg. With sandstone and some limestone in the soil, it is one of von Winning’s best premier crus. Dense and long, grilled peach, smoky spiciness: a noble Riesling. Completely fermented in oak and aged on the lees for one year.
