The grapes for this blend came from the Stein and Stielweg sites in Hochheim, both classified as Erste Lagen (top sites), and St Kiliansberg in Kostheim, and 40% of the wine was made in large old oak casks to create a really rich and nervy wine with plenty of fruit and spice, but with a dry end.
Whilst delightfully fragrant, smelling of acacia blossom and spring flowers, this Riesling is quite taut, fresh with acidity, almost salty.
It has the density and richness of the wines that inspired the term ‘hock’ (from the nearby city of Hochheim), but finishes bone dry.
JAMES SUCKLING SAYS: “An excellent ‘Estate Riesling’ that has plenty of tart peach and lemon aromas. Juicy and very crisp with some real minerality at the long finish. Delicious through 2022.” 91 POINTS
