Tasting Notes

Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland

2018 - Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling GG
Fine-spicy nose, with huge elegance, slightly floral, citrus and lemon style fruit notes. Beautiful spiciness on the palate followed by a great, racy acidity, very elegant and noble. Finishes very mineralic, white pepper and ripe grapefruit.

2015 - Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling GG
Great crisp acidity and minerality driven nose with great spiciness and citrus, unripe pineapple and herbs, slight peach. On the palate a short glimpse of creamy, then a powerful acidity breaks through with great spicy slate minerals, fruity body of green apples, apricots and grapefruit notes, long and salty finish. Juicy and elegant. Just great! 

Hochheimer Hölle

2018 - Hochheimer Hölle Riesling GG
Already Goethe knew about the quality of Hochheim wines and this one is another great proof. Racy, spicy, super elegant nose, fresh apples and pears, broad ripe citrus and grapefruit elements, very inviting because of its huge elegance. On the palate juicy and rich, wonderful complex and at the same time easy drinking, spicy with elegant acidity. Finishes very harmonic with beautiful ripe citrus elements and spices.

2015 - Hochheimer Hölle Riesling GG
In the nose a great mixture of spices, great minerality and yellow fruits like ripe apricots, in a funny way the nose starts spicy and ends with a soft sweet note. On the palate smooth but powerful, great fresh acidity, fruit notes of plums, ripe peach and apples, long mineralic finish. A great wine! 

2015 - Hochheimer Hölle Riesling Auslese
Huge wine. The nose is filled with an entire basket of fruits, spices and floral elements, plums, cherry, exotic elements but also apples, herbal notes a well. On the palate great spicy minerality, smooth and very long, very complex but it comes quite elegant and classy. Love it!

A beautiful GG - maybe the secret champion of the 2018 collection of Künstler - great mix of spices, cherries, slight smoke, green apples, lemon balm in the nose, super elegant and round.
