Wine Advocate: “Picked between October 8 and 27, the 2015 Siefersheim Riesling Trocken Porphyry is clear, ripe and intense on the complex, yet delicate nose, with its herbal and stony flavors. However, it is also still a bit untamed seven weeks after the bottling, which was at the end of April 2016. Intense, lush and juicy in the palate, with great finesse and mineral piquancy, this has ripe and elegant acidity. This is a Premier Cru level with tension, expression, and seductive roundness and juiciness. The finish is pure and salty. The balance is remarkable. One of the finest village wines I have ever tasted from this domaine. Highly recommended.
I ought to be terribly wrong if 2015 is not the obvious best vintage that Daniel Wager and his viticulturist, Oliver Müller, have ever produced. The 2015 vintage, with its dry and warm summer and the sunny and coolish autumn, was simply perfect for a Siberian vineyard like the Heerkretz. This vineyard does not give ripe grapes every year if you don’t fight hard for ripeness. Picked very late, towards end of October, the 2015 GG is fully ripe, intense and full of minerals. It is a full-bodied and aromatic, beautifully refined Riesling of pure elegance and finesse, with a very persistent finish. Also, the Höllberg GG, which is grown in a warmer spot, has never been better. It is dense, round and firmly structured, revealing a mouth-filling and extremely stimulating salinity. In both crus, the great Auslesen have been selected, but even the dry village and respectively the terroir wines, are of outstanding quality. Wine lovers have to check the dry Fürfeld Riesling Malaphyr, which can easily compete with top GG Rieslings in terms of elegance, finesse and mineral expression. ” 92/100 pts
