Kunstler Hochheim Kirchenstuck Riesling Grosses Gewachs 2020

SKU: 3103001171771494Categories: ,


This wine is a perfect meeting of petals and stones, like plum trees blossoming on a rocky escarpment. Barely 12% alcohol, it leads with fruit and then the tenderest reminder of mineral and then a jot of white hyacinth, all in a heart-renderingly cool creamy texture. Very complex nose of white chocolate, white peaches and fresh herbs. Sleek and very finely delineated, this is a super-elegant dry Rheingau riesling with a long, cool finish that ripples with notes of fennel and parsley. Drink or hold. K nstler’s 2020 Hochheim Kirchenst ck GG VDP. Grosse Lage opens clear, pure and fresh with an intense white fruit bouquet that is still more reductive than many of the other crus, though. Lush and refined on the palate, this is an elegant, vibrantly fresh, finely textured and balanced Kirchenst ck that reveals an uplifting, persistent, saline and juicy finish that indicates great aging potential, even though it’s already a great pleasure drinking the 2020 today. Also from its moderate weight and its lingering salty purity, this is a rather classic Hochheim Riesling despite the warm vintage. 12.5% stated alcohol. Screw cap. Rating: 93+
