Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages:

"This included some fruit from older vines than usual – eg Morstein and Kirchspiel and Abtserde – they put some in because the older vines gave more substance in a dry year. Only half the volume of normal – 3,500 bottles. Older vines coped better with the dry season. RS 4 g/l.

Highly aromatic with lemon and lime fruit, and a light herbal character from the spontaneous fermentation. Medium-dry sweetness balanced with beautifully intense but not harsh acidity. The wine had been recently sulphured (40 ppm) as it was about to be bottled and I did sense this on the nose at the moment. But on the palate there is intensity and purity. There’s a light note of orange here too. Has depth and intensity but also a light touch. "

Product Description:

"Riesling trocken is from grapes from clay, loess and limestone rock soils. Harvested at 12,0 degrees alc, great acidity and freshness in 2015 - just a brillant year for it." -Klaus-Peter Keller
