About

93

"Those who accuse Tesch of making charmless wines need to taste this mouthful of juicy fruit (citrus-dominated fruit salad) set alight by bright acidity that reminds me of yellow grapefruit (there's also a hint of grapefruit bitterness on the finish): joy in the glass!"

91+ Stephan Reinhardt - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Tesch's 2015 Riesling Trocken Königsschild is very clear and elegant on the intense nose, where fine white fruit and floral aromas are displayed; there are also some smoky flavors that indicate a very nice purity. On the palate, this wine is racy and piquant, very dry and straight; it is an elegant but still challenging classic, with a pretty pronounced acidity. It also has good extract and not much additional sweetness. This is a complex and promising Riesling that just needs a bit of our patience."

Product Description:

"To the south of the LOHRER BERG we find the calcareous limestone mixed with loess and river loam that form the KONIGSSCHILD. The roots of the old grape vines follow the seeping water as far as 15 m (50 ft) into the ground, helping to keep the soil loosely packed. The Rieslings grown here flaunt a bouquet of floral scents and a coy nature, especially in their youth. The flavors are soft, elegant and refined. The vineyard’s name likely comes from its former ownership to the Imperial Palace in Ingelheim, the winter residence of Charlemagne." - Winery
