Weingut Heinrich Spindler, Jesuitengarten Riesling Trocken Grosse Lage, 2016

$55.99

A wine of pure pleasure, with bright tropical, almost Sauvignon Blanc-like notes. More immediately satisfying upon opening than the Kirkenstuck but doesn't change as drastically. An amazing way to taste the soil differences in these side by side vineyards, basalt and sandstone in both but lime detritus and clay are also found in Kirkenstuck.

"Due to a smaller-than-usual crop from his already small share of this famed site, Spindler raised this 2016 in a combination of 500-liter cask and tank. ...the sheer intensity of pungent green herbal aromas and flavors is not in doubt, and the sustained finish benefits from brightly juicy fresh lime as well as an invigoratingly tactile sense of stony impingement." -- David Schildknecht, Vinous
