Gut Hermannsberg Steinberg Riesling Grosse Gewachs 2016 (Nahe, Germany) "...apple, stone fruit, nutmeg..."
"A huge, smokey wine that has quite an analytically high acid content, but is much more strongly marked by its enormous ripeness and the polish that brings with it. Great now, but should hold for many years to come." 95 Points, James Suckling
"Bittersweet gentian and iris perfume mingles with piquancy of peach kernel and nose-wrinkling pungency of mustard seed and lemon zest in a fascinating nose recognizably akin to that of this wine’s vintage 2015 predecessor. (That minerally and florally complex 2015 installment continued to impress when tasted alongside.) Consistent, too, with past impressions from this site is textural firmness allied to an earthy, adamantly stony sense of mineral matter. And this time there is also a welcome hint of salinity that adds mouthwatering appeal to a gripping finish whose bright juiciness is impressively transparent to the other aforementioned mineral as well as floral elements." 92 Points, Vinous
"Meet Prince Charming! The 2016 Steinberg GG makes its début, resplendently fine and nicely polished. In the nose once perceives aromas of apple, stone fruit, hawthorn and nutmeg, followed on the palate by white peach, grapefruit and lemon. A wine with great potential, though already quite accessible in its tender youth. ‘The lingering finish confirms this wines’ amplitude. Shades of grapefruit, mint and delicate herbal spice. A salty minerality paired with flint. Lively and exciting, yet at the same time boasting a creamy texture. A combination making this a wine of exception, far more than just enjoyable”, boasted Heiner Lobenberg."
