Robert Weil Kiedricher Gräfenberg Riesling Trocken GG 2018
The 2018 Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling Trocken GG is a great dry Riesling: very juicy, intense and long, yet fresh and mineral, with remarkable finesse, structure and a persistently salty finish. The wine opens with a deep, ripe and fine, fresh and elegant Riesling bouquet with many layers and aromas that develop with aeration when mirabelle aromas start emerging and intertwine with the noble sur lie and flinty terroir notes. Vinified in large oak, this is a full-bodied, round and rich, textured Gräfenberg with a firm tannin structure and fine and ripe, mineral acidity. This is a firm and tense Riesling with reduced power, sustainable salinity and mineral freshness on the finish. 38,000 bottles were filled in July 2019. Tasted three times in autumn and winter 2019.
Generous yet elegant, showing a beautiful dimension to the blood orange, apricot and delicate mineral flavors. Precisely balanced, with intensity and focus deriving from the pronounced acidity. The persistent finish features prominent accents of savory herb and mineral. Best from 2022 through 2034. 2,400 cases made.
