One of the great dry rieslings of 2016 and although it comes from "mellow" Rheinhessen this has an extremely northerly personality. Enormous minerality is interwoven with the pineapple, citrus and wild herbs character. Sensational balance and a very long finish. If possible wait until 2020, but this will age well beyond 2040.
The 2016 Riesling Siefersheimer Heerkretz GG is deep and dusty on the nose, like a truck loaded with crushed stones and white peaches. The super pure, elegant, fresh and focused nose leads to a full-bodied, dense, highly elegant and harmonious Riesling with intense, lush fruit as well as tensioned grip and piquant minerality. This is a terribly young but complex Riesling that needs a while to unfold its talents. Highly promising. As always, the Heerkreetz is leaner, fresher and more precise than the Höllberg, which in turn is more lush, mouth-filling and fruit-intense. The grapes in the Heerkretz were picked in late October (between the 24th and 30th), macerated for up to 12 hours and fermented/aged in 60% stainless steel tanks and 40% large oak vats (Stück, 1,200 liters). Bottled in July 2017.
