2007 Künstler Vintage Presentation

Some of the fine vines of Hochheim

As every year, Künstler presented his newest vintage at the Estate in Hochheim. The sky was overcast, but it was warm and the thrill of the 2007 vintage allured guests on its own. Here are some of the wines I tried:

The 2007 Finnesse, is a light fruity Riesling with somehow atypical earthy notes reminding Sauvignon Blanc, interesting.

The 2007 Herrnberg Qba was one of our favorites, nice balance, with fruit and herbs, vibrant and harmonious at the same time.

The Hölle Kabinett trocken is a beautiful wine, with a more emphasized acidity, but what an elegant acidity, it is quite austere now with herbs and less fruit, and powerful, but should be improving massively with time.

The Stielweg Alte Reben trocken appeared also vibrant and powerful, very appealing.

Hochheimer Kirchenstück trocken Goldkapsel is actually a downgraded First Growth since the harvest yielded 52 Hl surpassing the allowed yield for first growths by 2 Hl. This is of course a very nice wine with fruit and power, but will need its time.

From the older vintages that were there to taste, the 2005 Hochheimer Hölle trocken Goldkapsel and the 2004 Hölle Riesling Auslese trocken were 2 splendid wines.
