About

93-94

"Last tasted from cask in June 2016, this combines ripe white peach, fresh lime and floral perfume with coolingly pungent mint and oregano. Polished in feel and infectiously juicy, it introduces a welter of shimmering, ineffable mineral nuances – saline, stony, crystalline, peppery – in its undulating, multilayered, mouthwatering, finely focused finish." June 2016

Product Description:

"Hochäcker vineyard (100% Riesling) is situated above the steep vineyards of Senftenberg. Here, a thick layer of humus rests on a bedrock of mica schist. This is ideal for Riesling wines which boast a very distinct and dark mineral characteristic and a lot of substance for a long life." - Winery
