“The nougat and white-chocolate notes on the nose are light years removed from the norm for a riesling from northern Germany. However, on the palate there’s exactly the crystalline clarity, peachy fruit and citrusy freshness that you expect. Long, intense finish. From organically grown grapes.”

Beschrijving

Een klassieker van Daniel Wagner en jaar na jaar een van de beste droge rieslings, zeker wanneer de prijs meegewogen wordt, die je kopen kunt. In de loop van de jaren zijn de wijnen bij Wagner-Stempel fijner geworden, met meer finesse, meer frisheid en meer energie. Hoewel het Weingut in Rheinhessen ligt, is het terroir meer gelijk aan dat wat we zien in de Nahe bij mensen als Tim Fröhlich, met zijn steile wijngaarden van vulkanisch gesteente zoals de Heerkretz en Höllberg.

Professional reviews:

Wine Advocate (David Schildknecht): “Lime, white peach and apple on the nose translate into an infectiously juicy, invigoratingly zesty, piquantly pit-tinged impression on a polished palate. Bittersweet gentian perfume adds inner-mouth allure, while smoky and tinglingly stony notes lend tactile stimulation as well as fascination on a vibrantly sustained, mouthwateringly salt-tinged and consummately refreshing finish. This wine seems more buoyant and fleet-footed than its 12.5% alcohol would suggest.” 93/100 pts

Stuart Pigott (jamessuckling.com): “The nougat and white-chocolate notes on the nose are light years removed from the norm for a riesling from northern Germany. However, on the palate there’s exactly the crystalline clarity, peachy fruit and citrusy freshness that you expect. Long, intense finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Screw cap.” 93/100 pts

Michael Schmidt (jancisrobinson.com): “It’s amazing what porphyry and Riesling can do together. A delightful fragrance brings together a breath of cool forest air, mountain-stream freshness and herbs, never mind the stone fruit. On the palate the wine manages to deliver all these components with absolute clarity, adding the merest of herbaceous touches and even a slight sprinkling of fennel. And all this without any concession to residual sugar, ie bone dry!” 17/20 pts
