JOHN GILMAN - VIEW FROM THE CELLAR - 89 POINTS
The 2017 Estate Riesling Trocken is a very strong indication that the entire lineup is going to be excellent here in this vintage, as this is a very high quality, entry level wine. The wine comes in at twelve percent alcohol and carries 4.5 grams per liter of residual sugar this year. It offers up a fine bouquet of tart orange, grapefruit, slate, a touch of wild yeasts and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is medium-full, focused and very well-balanced, with a good core, ripe, seamless acids and excellent length and grip on the open and precise finish. This is a serious bottle! 2018-2030. 89.

From volcanic soils the 2017 (Estate) Riesling Trocken is lovely, pure, refined and mineral on the nose, displaying ripe white fruit aromas and crushed stone flavors. On the palate, this is a tension-filled, lovely, juicy and intense Riesling of great elegance, lightness and finesse.
