2007 Kiedricher Turmberg Riesling trocken, Robert Weil, Rheingau

IMG_9414

First of all one has to know that this is a very filigree wine. I knew it. But what occurred to me is that despite this knowledge, I tried it after having had a glass of powerful and intense Chardonnay; and of course, the Turmberg hence appeared extremely light and shallow. I closed the bottle again to give it another try a day later.
And then it was a much easier exercise. The nose has this slight smoky, wild touch which could emanate from spontaneous fermentation, but really just slightly, the body is balanced, mineral, not overpowered with fruit: it’s finesse from Rheingau! You get that impression of minerals dancing on your palate, some slate notes, and a fresh mineral finish. Definitely another nice Weil Riesling in the end!
