Another amazing dry Riesling from this producer. This wine marries richness and enormous lemony freshness, ending with a starburst of herbal-mineral character. Drink now or hold.
From the earliest of the grand crus, the Schlossböckelheimer, 2016 Nahe Riesling Felsenberg GG opens with a fascinating, fine and complex bouquet with spicy/vegetal, herbal and stony aromas, whereas the fruit is subtle, very clear and precise. On the palate, this is a round and juicy Felsenberg that reveals intense fruit, with ripe but fine acidity and a long, well-structured and powerful finish. This is a warmer type of Riesling, coming from a cru that Tim harvests with respect to the berry skins, which should still have buoyancy since the grapes of the Felsenberg tend to become overripe in a very short time, even within a day.

A site-typical aromatic amalgam of struck flint, huckleberry and crushed stone mingles with hops, papaya and green mango, anticipating the piquant, smoky, slightly austere impression on a silken palate. Wisteria perfume adds allure that persists in the mouth, while white peach wells up to convey unexpectedly generous finishing fruitiness. To an even greater extent than with this year’s Vulkangestein blend (around half of which originates in Felsenberg), there is a remarkably persistent and profoundly mouthwatering evocation of toasted shrimp shells and oyster liquor with all of the mineral and animal diversity and intrigue those convey, as well as striking clarity and an exhilarating sense of lift.

Whiffs of wet river rocks and lemon zest introduce this profoundly stony yet fruity dry Riesling. High-toned acidity lends an electric edge to fresh white grapefruit and greengage-plum flavors. Full bodied and mouth filling, it finishes with a long astringent bite of lime zest. Delightful already but sure to improve through 2030, hold much longer. *Cellar Selection* (AI)
Aromatic and juicy, this floral, medium-bodied white offers notes of hops and almond skin framing the core of bergamot, ripe pear and persimmon. Very pure, with an underlying creaminess to the saline details, accented by white pepper hints. The spicy finish is lush and persistent. Best from 2019 through 2029. (AZ)
Light as a feather (in a good way) with real tension on the nose. Some suggestion of a brassica. Really very distinctive and enjoyable -- provided you don’t have a fear of green vegetables. Quite explosively pungent. Sleek and very fresh. Real pace on this wine! (JR)
