The 2019 Wachenheimer Riesling is lemon-fresh, precise and stony on the pure, fascinatingly crunchy/stony and coolish nose. Round and quite juicy yet pure and with fine tannins, this is a textured and rather mild Riesling, but so elegant, with a generous and charming character. Tasted as a sample in April 2020.
Fresh green apple and peach aromas. Juicy mouth-feel, clean minerality and elegant acidity.
Summery temperatures at the end of March let us fear an even earlier harvest than in 2017 and 2018 but then two cold weeks in May stopped the vegetation almost entirely and the growth in the vineyards slowed down. The flowering was varying and effected smaller quantities than the previous year. The summer was beautiful and extremely dry but unlike in 2018 the vineyards could benefit from more winter wetness. The harvest started in early September and the wines in our cellar are just fantastic! The brilliance and clarity of each terroir is perfectly recognizable and the acidity is wonderfully balanced. 2019 is a great vintage for us!
