2020 Heymann-Lowenstein Rottgen Riesling Grosses Gewachs
So spicy and exotic – papaya and pineapple! – but these immediately appealing things are merely the clothing wrapped around a remarkable structure. Extraordinary interplay of extrovert ripeness and fundamental minerality at the super-long finish. From organically grown grapes with Fair'n Green certification. Drink or hold.
Screw cap. 97 points. Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com
Very intense nose and real tension on the palate with fruit that was obviously very ripe – though the acidity comes dancing through. Still fairly embryonic. Quite chewy on the end at this early stage in its life. Superbly refreshing. Hugely intense palate too – great extract. 17.5++/20 Jancis Robinson, MW
