Tasting Notes

Rüdesheimer Berg Rottland

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

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!

2008 - Hochheimer Hölle Riesling GG
The nose is a beauty: Great floral notes with a fruit mix of donut peach and sweet, juicy nectarines, great spicy minerality. The palate is dense and elegant, great dry acidity, warm and complex, wonderful deep spices, almost firestone like minerality, white pepper. A beauty!

1998 - Hochheimer Hölle Riesling Auslese
Amber color, slight oxidation, in the nose honey, liquorice, zabaione, cherry, on the palate caramel and honey, mineralization with a slight, hardly recognizable petrol note, ripe pineapple, great wine! 

1989 - Hochheimer Hölle Riesling Auslese
The nose is overwhelming with a spiciness you wouldn’t expect, also lots of of caramel, herbs and honey, slight licorice. On the palate a bomb of taste, spicy acidity meets smoky minerality, dark chocolate, raisins, long finish with spicy, herbal caramel. Most amazing!

Hochheimer Kirchenstück

2015 - Hochheim Kirchenstück Riesling GG
In the nose a fine and powerful mixture of beautiful almost firestone-like spicy minerality and nice fruit notes of apples and citrus, also pineapple and pear, slight peach. On the palate powerful minerality and crisp acidity, slight fruit notes only, very long citrus and firestone finish.

2015 - Kostheim Weiß Erd Riesling GG
It has the most fruity nose with lots of intense notes of many ripe fruits like apples, peach and pears, very deep limestone minerality, soft acidity, very smooth on the palate, great Riesling! Very characteristic!
