2006 Kiedricher Gräfenberg GG, Robert Weil

IMG_5763

Robert Weil’s wines have been mentioned quite often on my blog, but I don’t run an ad campaign for them, I promise. Actually I’m pretty sure they don’t need more publicity anyway, since they’re delivering excellent qualities since years, decades and centuries now.
This time I again opened a 2006 Grosses Gewächs from the Gräfenberg but oops, first bottle corked – happily the second I grabbed was fine. I had this wine the last time in Kuala Lumpur at a beef noodle stall on the street. This was of course a completely different experience. Now we drink it calmly in the evening without spicy food and I have the time to take a few notes:
Honey notes in the nose, slight apricot fruit also. On the palate very balanced with a good weight but little complexity, rather smooth, no edges, maybe a little acidity is lacking. Fruit is there with honey again, reminding a hint of botrytis for some though (although I don’t really agree). With time, the wine develops some power and shows more and more presence on the palate, minerality becomes more apparent. For a GG it’s rather a calm companion still, but I guess it might have potential to develop.
