FRITZ ZIMMER   Mosel And Rheinhessen  -  GERMANY

FRITZ ZIMMER is a brand of German wines crafted by the Römerhof winery that are crafted from the highest quality grapes processed with only the most modern standards, techniques and technology. Unlike many larger German wineries, Heinz Eifel himself, owner of Römerhof, and his winemaker daughter have control over the entire winemaking process — from vine to bottle.

Over the past 20 years, the Römerhof winery has established long-term contracts with select growers who are advised to cultivate vineyards under exacting standards with restricted yields and specific harvest times. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. All wines are then tasted and blended by a committee of oenologists and sommeliers. All production takes place in an ISO standard certified bottling plant and the wines are stored in modern climate-controlled warehouses.

The designation on the wine indicates the level of ripeness that the grapes have attained. The Kabinett classification makes the lightest wine and the grapes are considered ripe. Spätlese classified grapes are considered late harvest. They have been left on the vine much longer and therefore are more intensely flavored.
