The producer

Peter Jakob Kühn is a renowned wine producer based in the Rheingau region of Germany, a family-owned estate that has been producing wines since 1786. The winery is committed to biodynamic viticulture, a holistic approach to farming that emphasizes the interrelationship between soil, plants, and animals as a self-sustaining system.

Peter Jakob Kühn and his family have been pioneers in adopting and promoting biodynamic practices in the region, aiming to produce wines that are not only expressive of their terroir but also sustainable and environmentally friendly. The estate is best known for its Riesling wines, which are celebrated for their depth, complexity, and ability to age gracefully.

The wine

The Peter Jakob Kühn Rheingau Riesling Quarzit Trocken 2021 is a distinctive expression of the Rheingau region's unique terroir, particularly showcasing the quartzite soil's influence on the Riesling grape. This wine is a testament to the winery's commitment to biodynamic practices, aiming to reflect the purity and complexity of its origin. The "Quarzit Trocken" designation highlights a dry style Riesling, with "trocken" meaning dry in German, indicating that the wine has little to no residual sugar, emphasizing the crisp, mineral-driven character of the wine.

The 2021 vintage, like many from this region, benefits from the Rheingau's favourable growing season, producing wines of great aromatics, with this particular wine likely featuring vibrant citrus and stone fruit notes, a hallmark mineral complexity due to the quartzite soils, and a lively acidity that makes it both refreshing and capable of aging.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
