Pfeffingen Weilberg Riesling GG trocken 2016 (Pfalz, Germany)


"Deep, rich and subtle, this is an imposing yet polished dry riesling. Then an extra element kicks in on the very long, dark finish. Drink or hold." 94 Points, James Suckling

"Nicely crafted and focused, with a silky texture and piercing acidity cutting through the ripe citrus and green apple flavors. Notes of oyster shell are introduced toward the finish, as this wraps up on the savory side. Best from 2020 through 2028." 92 Points, Wine Spectator

"Zesty grapefruit and kumquat on the nose translate into prominent piquancy on the palate, but there is enough citrus juice leavening to ward off outright bitterness. Faintly oily and full-bodied but a half degree lighter than its 14% alcohol 2015 counterpart, this finishes with continued prominent, now positively glowing piquancy; an energetic sense of stony, smoky mineral impingement; and a generous measure of sheer white peach and orange juiciness. It displays less sense of animation than its “Kalkstein” sibling and lacks that bottling’s appealingly herbal dimension, but in its riper way represents an impressively gripping, forceful interpretation of Riesling." 91 Points, Vinous
