|John Gilman, View from the Cellar #62|
“The Piesporter Riesling this year carries the Trocken designation, as it was finished around five grams per liter of residual sugar. This is made from the youngest vines that Julian works with in his parcels in Goldtröpfchen, which were all planted in 1985 and are now thirty years of age. The wine offers up a complex and classy bouquet of tart pear, orange zest, petrol, a fien base of slate, wild yeasts, a bit of currant leaf and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with outstanding focus and grip and a long, racy finish.

"This offers a ripe nose of yellow fruits including yellow peach, mirabelle and pineapple as well as apricot and smoke with some airing. The wine proves on the powerful side on the palate yet develops a nice spicy and zesty structure towards the very long and dynamic finish. This wine is still slightly tart and tannic and will need a few years to find its balance."
