2022 Robert Weil Rheingau Riesling Trocken

Robert Weil

Rheingau, Germany

This cuvée is a blend of fruit from Weil’s high-altitude sites dotted around the village of Kiedrich. These vineyards include the brilliantly named Sandgrub vineyard, and there’s also a good dollop from Wasseros, a steep, southwest-facing vineyard that abuts the Gräfenberg vines. The soils of these sites are typically composed of stony, fragmented phyllite interlaced with loess and loam. At this level, the wine is vinified in stainless steel with roughly 5% fermented in large oak.

“Full white-peach fruit on the nose and the generous palate, this is a prototypical example of the increased ambition many leading producers are applying to the wines of this humble category. Beautiful balance at the long, very elegant finish.” 92 points, Stuart Pigott, jamessuckling.com
