Gut Hermannsberg Rotenberg Riesling Grosse Gewachs 2016 (Nahe, Germany) "...nectarine, peach, citrus..."
"Enormous herbal intensity and impressive mineral concentration make this a very striking wine that hits you like a lightning bolt. Maybe that will be too much for some, but I find it extremely exciting. The sleek crystalline finish doesn't want to stop! Drink now and for the next few decades." 94 Points, James Suckling
"The nose is distinctively and fascinatingly smoky and ashen as well as piquantly suggestive of peach kernel, walnut, lemon zest and bruised apple skin. All of the aforementioned elements lend intriguing counterpoint on a silky, dense but in no way heavy palate that boasts an impressive influx of white peach juiciness. The seriously sustained finish is focused, fascinatingly diverse in mineral shadings, pithily piquant but sufficiently polished in texture and outright thirst-quenching enough to avoid austerity. (The 2015, tasted alongside, displays some intriguing mossy bottle evolution and continues to perform impressively.)" 92 Points, Vinous
"Argillaceous slate imparts charm to the Rotenberg GG, while the volcanic stone porphyry brings a sense of purity and delineation. The 2016 GG from the Rotenberg is gripping and sophisticated, a wine with great depth and complexity that demands focus and attention on the part of the taster. It enchants the nose with a wide palette of fruit aromas: nectarine, peach, citrus and red currants complemented with floral notes. On the palate the wine is stony and mineral-driven, with bright fruit and a tart spiciness."
