Tasting Notes

Kiedrich Gräfenberg

2016 - Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling GG
Beautiful nose with great minerality, peach, pear and floral beauty, one the palate smooth and elegant, juicy and with salty minerality in the amazing finish. Always loved the Gräfenberg - and we know why.

2016 - Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling Auslese
Opulent in the nose, you immediately recognize that this is something great in your nose, fruit notes of passion fruit, peach, ripe pear, cherry, apricots mix up with floral elements and herbs like lemon balm, on the palate a fresh and lively acidity jumps on you, that plays with the sweetness, the mineralic body carries it for very long. 

2013 - Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling GG
Clear citrus, physalis, beautiful mineralization, great balance already, acidity very pure, herbal elements, brilliant finish with salty and fruity acidity, just great!

2008 - Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling Erstes Gewächs
Great minerals and a broad fruit basket in the nose, smooth on the palate, very soft, unbelievable mouthfill and complexity, again salty minerality in the finish, great fruit-acidity play. The additional five years are worth the waiting!

2004 - Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling Erstes Gewächs
2004 is comparable to 2008 but the few more years make it even smoother, softer and more balanced, the age adds some fine honey to out, without loosing the great salt minerality and the perfect acidity-fruit balance. 

1994 - Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling Auslese
After 23 years it still has a beautiful spicy minerality - in the nose and on the palate. The aging notes of caramel, honey and dried fruit did not at all cover the fruit and herbal notes. You taste peaches, apples and pepper. The finish is long and spicy. It easily can last 23 more years. Bravo!

1992 - Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling Auslese
All the great flavors of older Rieslings - like honey, caramel, still with nice acidity and beautiful mineral body. Just wicked! 

Kiedrich Turmberg

2016 - Kiedrich Turmberg Riesling Auslese
The 2016 is so perfect already. Such a nice nose - floral, spicy, fruity, on the palate so dense and intense. The beauty of a spicy Auslese is so rar, the minerality almost salty mixing nicely with the fruit elements which are mostly exotic but also stone fruits. Everlasting in the finish! 

2013 - Kiedrich Turmberg Riesling trocken
Herbal and spicy in the nose, basil, lemon grass, citrus peel. On the palate elegant, mouthwatering acidity, well balanced, citrus, grapefruit peel. Finishes with herbs, citrus and salt.

2010 - Kiedrich Turmberg Riesling Auslese
The 2010 is a bit different in character than the 2016. More minerality in the nose, spices are mixed with honey flavors, herbal and floral notes are lighter but also very well integrated, on the palate it comes more elegant with beautiful acidity, long lasting with a wicked fruit-honey-minerality mix. A balanced Auslese that we can't stop drinking.
