Kunstler Hochheimer Domdechaney Riesling Trocken 2020
Riesling wines from the Domdechaney site are known for their substance, concentration and body. They are also marked by distinctive, intense aromas of ripe fruits such as honeydew melon and lychee. Calcareous clay marl lends a stunning minerality and a characteristic but nevertheless gentle acidity. A very complex dry riesling that has so much apricot fruit, but also a ton of cucumber and wet-earth character. Enormous power, but it somehow remains subtle and light-footed. In spite of that, the finish is huge and fresh. From organically grown grapes with Fair’n Green certification. Drink now. From deep and heavy clay soils and another very warm vintage, the 2020 Hochheimer Domdechaney VDP. Erste Lage is deep and intense on the coolish, elegant, well-focused, slightly flinty and finely reductive nose. Lush and with vivacious acidity, this is a medium to full-bodied, rich, intense and persistently saline dry Riesling with lifted power and remarkable elegance. Still young but very, very promising! Definitely from older vines and really deep soils. 13% stated alcohol. Screw cap.
