Tasting Notes

Ölberg

2013 - Königsbacher Ölberg Riesling 
The nose is super elegant and juicy, limestone minerality, honey, floral notes, donut peach, ripe pineapple, banana. On the palate elegant but very present acidity, lively and vibrating, exotic fruit notes of pineapple and passion fruit. Finishes very long and vibrant with lots of grapefruit style acidity. A great wine! Especially with five years of aging it is now perfectly balanced.

Idig

2016 - Idig Riesling GG
Amazing elegance and precision, in the nose the limestone minerality and the wood accompanied by white flowers, apples, pears, nuts. On the palate really smooth, majestic, perfectly creamy and joyful at the same time, perfect acidity, greatly balanced. A king of 2016s GGs!

2011 - Idig Riesling Auslese
It is such an incredible mixture of banana, cherry, pepper, apricots, cloves, plum and a very soft petrol flavor. We have never tasted anything similar.

Hohenmorgen

1999 - Hohenmorgen Riesling Beerenauslese
Still so many layers of fruit from strawberry to peach, from plum to cherry, very fresh acidity, a kings and queens wine.

Reiterpfad

2015 - Reiterpfad Riesling GG
It is an unbelievably precise wine, in the nose decent but very nice minerality, some flavours of peach, apricots and passion fruit, slight herbal elements, on the palate very broad with a straightforward acidity, fruit flavors from the nose are added by some citrus elements, clear and long lasting. 

2007 - Reiterpfad Riesling GG
It has great minerality and decent fruitiness in the nose, it comes a bit heavy, but quite rounded up with elements of caramel and some floral notes, on the palate a bomb with salty minerality, herbal notes, slight melon, very soft, dense and long lasting. Great one!
