The Flick family have been winegrowers in the village of Wicker in the Rheingau since 1650. Wicker is one of the oldest winegrowing communities in the Rheingau. The vineyards benefit from sunny southeastern location on the hillsides of Wickerbachtal and the area was already noted in Roman times; wine was cultivated there, as shown by various archeological finds. 

Johann Pillippo Flick was the first 9 generations to make wine here, in 1973 Joachim Flick took over the family estate followed by his son Reiner Flick in 1992.   They focus mostly on Riesling and Pinot Noir, though do grow other varietals and farm sustainably.  They use local Taunus oak for their barrels.   

Tasting Notes

The Victoriaberg conjures up liquid gold in the glass.  Pronounced aromas of pear, apricot, white peach paired with spicy notes unite on the palate. This is a classy, ​​elegant and incredibly radiant wine.  Dry Riesling is very food friendly; at once intense and concentrated in terms of flavour and structure, but never heavy or at risk of overwhelming a dish.  It can be enjoyed with a range of foods, seafood, vegetarian dishes, chicken and pork.     

Method

60% of the juice is fermented in wooden barrels and 40% in stainless steel tanks.  The wine is dry and finishes at about 5 g/L RS with 12.5% alcohol.
