This is Weil’s ‘villages’ level Riesling (the village being Kiedrich). The fruit is a blend of younger-vine material, as well as first-picked parcels from the classified, hillside Estate sites of Klosterberg, Turmberg and Gräfenberg. As you would expect from such terroir, it has more texture and power than the wine above. It’s full of pulpy stone fruit, ripe nectarine and citrus rind goodness, and driven by intense and tangy mineral freshness. There’s plenty of flesh, but the wine simply dances across the palate. The style is archetypal Kiedrich (i.e. very fresh, vibrant and translucent) and the wine’s succulent intensity beautifully expresses both its origins and the meticulous vine culture of this Estate.

“From younger vines cultivated from the three crus of the domain plus fruit from the Wasseros, which is located above the Gräfenberg, the 2018 Kiedricher Riesling Trocken displays a bright color and an intense and concentrated bouquet with white fruit aromas and very fine slate and earthy aromas. Round and lush on the palate, this is a well-structured, slightly phenolic and still slightly bitter dry Riesling with a long and firm, very promising and refreshing, salty finish. This is a still a baby but an excellent, tight 2018 Riesling from Kiedrich. Thirty percent of the wine was vinified in large oak” 91 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

“Lemon, lemongrass, more flint and salt on the palate than their Gutswein. Green-olive bitterness on the finish. Astutely judged balance – just avoids austerity, and has loads of concentration and savoury persistence on the finish.” 17 points, JancisRobinson.com
