Robert Weil, Kiedrich Grafenberg, Riesling, Spätlese, 2016

Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
8.5 %

Notes

A beautifully clear, pure, cool almost aquatic nose, strewn with herbs and freshly cut orange notes. There's good depth to the palate and a real core of sweet fruit in this powerful, pure Spätlese. There’s a delicate seam of acidity and while classically Rheingau in structure it remains nimble.

Notes
Lusciously ripe peach mingles with grapefruit, salted caramel and marine minerality on the nose and delicate yet lush, glycerol-rich palate of this formidably-concentrated and impeccably balanced bottling. It comes off as both riper (in effect, more Auslese-like) and more citric than the Turmberg, finishing with terrific energy to accompany its richness. But the hauntingly, intriguingly and flatteringly floral and animal elements that characterize Turmberg at its best aren’t in evidence here.
