Wonderful peach and lime fruit with a chalky mineral drive that runs the length of the palate. The 2016 Kiedrich Turmberg is a fleshier, more seductive wine. It is every bit as mineral as usual, and another brilliant Riesling.
The vines here are in the 30-50 year old range. The Kiedrich Turmberg is a monopole vineyard. This means it is owned in its entirety by the Robert Weil Estate. Alongside Gräfenberg it is classified as a Grosse Lage (though Weil chooses not to bottle a Grosses Gewächs from Turmberg). With its base of phyllite rock and thin topsoil, the Turmberg displays more obvious mineral voltage than the Klosterberg.
