Robert Weil Kiedrich Klosterberg Riesling Trocken 2020

The vines on this steep, four-hectare vineyard are now 30-50 years old. At 260 metres, it's the highest of the three Weil hillside sites, yet thanks to its southern aspect and deeper, iron-rich weathered slate soils, it also produces the most opulent and seductive of these wines (when young). The Weil team often use the term 'baroque' when describing wines from Klosterberg, in reference to the lift and generosity. There are some similarities in character with the Kiedricher but again, there is a kick up in the intensity and drive on the finish. Raised entirely in Doppelstuckfass for eight months. 

This is a layered, stone-fruited beauty that is perfectly true to the terroir. Although there is opulence and plenty of silky flesh, the finish is incredibly fresh, saline and zesty. A truly great Klosterberg! 

"A very striking Rheingau wine! Quite a bit of exotic fruit, but, in spite of that, it remains a cool and tightly wound, racy dry riesling. Behind all this is quite a powerful structure, suggesting that it has serious aging potential." 94 points, Stuart Pigott,
