The stunning bouquet of fresh pineapple and citrus sucks you into this wine. An extraordinarily light-footed riesling considering how much power it has. The crystalline purity of the long, lingering finish makes this stand out from the pack. Only 20,000 bottles of this wine that's 80% from the great Heerkretz site. Best through 2030.
Golden in color and excitingly pure and dusty-mineral on the aromatic and well-concentrated nose, Wagner's 2016 Riesling Siefersheim "Porphyr" is a gorgeous wine! Lush, lean and piquant but also complex and intense on the palate, with perfectly ripe and intensely aromatic fruit, this is an expressive dry Riesling with moderate 12.5% alcohol, which is often the best weight for a dry Riesling in Germany. The fruit is just perfect because it is ripe, focused and fresh, in perfect balance with the characteristic minerals of the volcanic soils and the stunning acidity of the 2016 vintage. Has this wine ever been better? Did I ever taste a better German Ortswein (village wine)? (SR)
