I love the complex nose of pineapple, yellow grapefruit, smoke and dried sage. In spite of the considerable concentration, this is remarkably light on its feet, thanks to the uplifting freshness and very minerally acidity that lights up the long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. jamessuckling.com, 19th Sep 2018. 95 points
The Höllberg vineyard is located north of Siefersheim and extends for about one kilometre at an altitude of 160 to 220 metres. It is the warmest and driest of Wagner’s Rheinhessen operations. The heavily stone-infiltrated soils absorb the heat of the sun and store it for a very long time. Fermented in stainless steel tanks and matured in German oak barrels, this top Riesling is intense, voluminous and perfectly balanced.
