Feinherb in style with 17g/l RS. Gently textured, succulent, filled with vivid fruit. Grapefruit, plum, cherry, lime, gardenia and mint, this is simply ravishing. So much detail and presence, but utterly refreshing and tense. Very long carry, and although gorgeous now, this will improve for at least a decade and then some. Waters Wine Co
The 2019er Riesling comes mainly from Estate’s holdings in the Brauneberger Klostergarten, Burgener Römerberg, and Mülheimer Sonnenlay as well as from young vines from the Brauneberger Juffer, and was fermented down to off-dry levels of residual sugar (17 g/l). It offers a gorgeous even if hugely reduced nose made of mirabelle, herbs, spices, and smoke. After some airing, the wine develops a fresher side as lemon, red berry fruits, and floral elements join the party. The wine proves gorgeously elegant and fragrant on the juicy and zesty palate, and leaves a beautiful, mouthwatering feel of white peach, freshly cut apple, and herbs in the long and persistent finish. The presence in the after-taste is simply remarkable, certainly by “mere” Estate wine standards! The balance makes this wine already gorgeously approachable now, but it will offer much pleasure the best part of a decade, if not more. This is a huge success!

The 2019 Riesling is pure, bright and crystal-clear on the precise, floral and finessed nose. Round and juicy on the palate, this is a very delicate and stimulating Riesling in the off-dry style. The wine has enormous grip, and you won’t stop longing for it. Absolutely fabulous! 11% alcohol. Tasted from AP 1 20 in April 2020. Drink 2020-2032. 92 points, Stephan Rheinhardt, The Wine Advocate, August 2020.
