Description

Brilliant transparency for an estate riesling here; this is glimmering in lightly soaked stones, white pepper, green apples and paprika. Very polished and very pure on the medium-bodied palate with loads of petrichor undertones. Taut and fine framed. Drink now. 93 points, James Suckling

The 2018 Estate Trocken had been bottled three days before my visit, but was still showing very nicely. The fruit for this bottling hails from volcanic soils in and around Oberhäusen and the 2018 version comes in at 11.5 percent octane. The bouquet is bright and quite elegant in its constellation of lemon, grapefruit, a touch of wild yeasts, a lovely base of minerality and a topnote of citrus peel. On the palate the wine is crisp, fullish and nicely focused, with fine mineral undertow, good balance and grip and a long and classy finish. This is a really good entry level wine! John Gilman
