Robert Weil – 9/02/2012

Riesling Trocken 2011 and 2010 vintages
Through the process of blending and balance, these wines were almost indistinguishable. The size of the estate holdings and the volume produced (roughly 300,000 bottles) means that there is a higher possibility to maintain consistency in this wine from vintage to vintage.

Kiedricher Village Riesling 2010
Very spritzy vibrant fruit freshness, and had a little botrytis derived oxidative complexity.

Kiedrich Klosterberg Riesling 2010
Quite rich and tropical, showing more ripe characters without losing the balance.

Kiedrich Turmberg Riesling 2010
A slightly reductive mineralic nose, more vibrancy and defined acidity.

Grafenburg Erstes Gewachs Riesling 2010
Far too young to fairly assess it, as it was very tight and lean, but will develop beautifully over the next 10-15 years.

Kabinett Riesling, Grafenburg Spatlese and Auslese, all 2010
The acids in all cases were very well integrated and fresh, but there was a lot of concentrated ripe sweetness in the Spatlese and Auslese.
