Höllberg Riesling GG 2015
The intensely yellow-colored 2015 Höllberg Riesling GG is ripe and intense, yet also precise and stony on the nose; it has crushed iron stones and lemon flavors, but also some herbal and tropical fruit aromas. Full-bodied, round and rich, this is an intense wine. It is elegant, fresh and racy, as well as vital and very mineral. There is a stunning grip and purity in the finish. It is dense and round, but also provided with a mouth-filling salinity, stony character and a firm structure. The fruit is mainly yellow-fleshed (but there are super ripe or even dried white fruit flavors, as well), perfectly ripe and interwoven with the stony, salty-mineral purity and the grippy structure. This is probably one of the most—if not the most—vivid, pure and tension-filled Höllberg that the WAGNER STEMPEL team has ever produced.
It's a fascinating wine that was picked in between October 8-16 and should age for 15, probably 20 years
