2016 Hermannsberg GG
Riesling Trocken, Niederhäusen
Hvidvin - Riesling - 75 cl - 12,50 %
96 point + nr. 64 på Top 100 German Wines 2018 - JamesSuckling.com: "Still quite reserved, this is a noble dry riesling with great spicy subtlety and an almost weightless feeling on the palate, in spite of the considerable concentration. Long, very fresh and refined finish."
94 Point - Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Niederhausen Hermannsberg GG opens shy and phenolic, or pretty uncharming, on the coolish and herbal nose. On the palate, this is dense, round and quite intense, and the finish is crystalline and salty. This is an abnormal wine when compared to 2018 and 2017, more round and concentrated (as if there were more concentrated or raisined berries). The acidity is quite prominent, but this is a mouthful of wine. I like it, but it's different."
18 point - JancisRobinson.com: "A slightly waxy peel note reflects the maturity of an extra year in bottle, altogether the fragrance is a little more on the herbaceous side. The palate shows a good balance of fruit, minerality and herbal notes with gooseberry providing both sweet and sour components. Stone dust and a firm phenolic grip add edge to the finish."
93 point - Wine Spectator: "A broad dry white, with a vein of acidity piercing through the flavors of pear, lemongrass and grapefruit. Hints of smoked sea salt emerge midpalate. Very focused on the finish, with a long, minerally aftertaste. This is still tight but has a lot to offer, so better to wait for the elements to harmonize. Best from 2021 through 2030."
