10% noble rot berries add complexity, but without compromising the beautiful purity of this Auslese. The acacia honey and red apple fruits burst onto the palate and the mouth puckering acidity covers the 140 grams of residual sugar. Fabulous length and taught balance.
Only a handful of German wine Estates can boast excellence and consistency over a prolonged period. The wines of Robert Weil have not just been the standard bearers for Rheingau for the last few decades but equal to the top half dozen estates in Germany as a whole who are considered the best. Based in Kiedrich with 75 hectares of Riesling surrounding the fine Estate House and cellars, the vineyard management and wine making are based on precision with 100% focus on quality.
7,700 acres along the northern side of the Rhine between Wiesbaden and Rüdesheim where the Riesling produces classic and substantial wines.
