If you don't already know the wines of the Nahe be prepared to be blown away by this astonishing dry riesling. Super-ripe yet cool, mineral and herbal it has enormous depth, yet remains totally vibrant. The acidity pushes you right off a cliff and you free fall through the minerals for a very long time at the truly spectacular finish. Drink now or hold.
The 2016 Nahe Riesling Felseneck "GG" is super pure, precise, crystalline and flinty on the nose and palate, a great expression of the slatey terroir. There is a fascinating blueberry and floral expression like that of the Halenberg but even more fragrant and intertwined with notes of crushed slate. Harvested at the very end of October, this is a highly elegant, finessed and balanced Felseneck with perfectly ripe, juicy fruit. The wine is dry but perfectly balanced, while the finish is long, piquant and salty, full of crushed stones, fine tannins and lingering fruit intensity. The 2016 is a great dry Riesling and probably the best I have tasted here so far. (SR)
Very pale greenish straw. Pungent and intriguing. Transparent, 'cool' and with notable freshness. Acidity is notable; probably best to wait a little. But this is so juicy and dangerously thirst-quenching. Only Germany could produce a wine like this. (JR)
