Weingut Heinrich Spindler, Kirkenstuck Riesling Trocken Grosse Lage, 2016


From the top rated vineyard in the Pfalz, this is a wine just coming into it's own but with many more years to live. A wine of power, it needed several hours to open up, but was well worth the weight. There is no noticeable oak, but plenty of waxy texture and chewy dried extract.

"...an impressive concentration of both pungent and pleasantly cooling green herbal elements, allied to glowingly pit-tinged white peach and an invigoratingly incisive impingement of pepper and stone that puts me pleasingly in mind of Grüner Veltliner. The finish grips in its energetically tingling if not especially refreshing way." - -- David Schildknecht, Vinous
