“The fruit is just perfect because it is ripe, focused and fresh, in perfect balance with the characteristic minerals of the volcanic soils and the stunning acidity of the 2016 vintage. Has this wine ever been better? Did I ever taste a better German Ortswein (village wine)?”

Professional reviews:

Stuart Pigott (jamessuckling.com): “The stunning bouquet of fresh pineapple and citrus sucks you into this wine. An extraordinarily light-footed riesling considering how much power it has. The crystalline purity of the long, lingering finish makes this stand out from the pack. Only 20,000 bottles of this wine that’s 80% from the great Heerkretz site. Best through 2030. (9/2017)” 94/100 pts

Wine Advocate: “Golden in color and excitingly pure and dusty-mineral on the aromatic and well-concentrated nose, Wagner’s 2016 Riesling Siefersheim “Porphyr” is a gorgeous wine! Lush, lean and piquant but also complex and intense on the palate, with perfectly ripe and intensely aromatic fruit, this is an expressive dry Riesling with moderate 12.5% alcohol, which is often the best weight for a dry Riesling in Germany. The fruit is just perfect because it is ripe, focused and fresh, in perfect balance with the characteristic minerals of the volcanic soils and the stunning acidity of the 2016 vintage. Has this wine ever been better? Did I ever taste a better German Ortswein (village wine)? (SR) (10/2017) ” 93/100 pts

Vinous (David Schildknecht): “Dusty, smoky inflections on the nose mingle with anticipations of the fresh apple, lime and white currant that then feature in juicy abundance on a subtly silken palate. Piquant fruit seeds and citrus peels lend invigorating cut but without straying into outright bitterness. From a natural-cork-sealed as opposed to screwcapped bottle, an influx of ripe pear adds allure. There is transparency to active mineral impingement, primary juiciness and consequent refreshment in the glowing, gripping, zesty, practically vibratory finish, capping a performance that contrasts dramatically with that of this year’s basic Gutsriesling. (That finish, too, was more expressive in the natural-cork-closed bottle, whose performance I have reflected in my point-higher score.)” 92/100 pts
