Beskrivelse

From “petite Siberia,” the 2015 Siefersheimer Heerkretz Riesling trocken GG was picked very late between October 20 and 27; it displays a beautifully clear, intense, precise and smoky/mineral bouquet. There are herbal and oaky/chalky Burgundian notes, but wine is also shy. Its lush tropical aromas come along as an association rather than real fruit. Round and highly elegant on the palate, this is a dry, very refined, mineral and salty Riesling of great complexity. The wine has loads of salt and is provided with a long and persistent finish. The 2015 is fresh and chalky (though there is no chalk at all in the volcanic porphyry soils), as well as in perfect balance. It is Wagner’s most “Burgundian” Riesling and the finest Heerkretz that I can remember. The wine is chalky (though there is no chalk at all in the volcanic porphyry soils), dry and fresh; it should be excellent with food. I’d love to try it from a Burgundy glass, once. Compared to Höllberg, the Heerkretz is pretty restrained, but very precise. A great, great Riesling and one of the finest 2015s in all of Germany. 94-95 point Wine Advocate.

Om Producenten

En kometkarriere har han gjort sig, Daniel Wagner i Rheinhessen. Biodynamiker til fingerspidserne og perfektionist i kælderen er Daniel en mester i at få sine vinstokke til at gøre det, særligt Riesling-druen er så god til: At udtrykke sit voksested. Daniel driver i dag den 13 ha. store vingård i Siefersheim, som han overtog efter sin far i 1993. I perioden siden han overtog, har han udviklet vingården til i dag at være blandt Tysklands bedste og mest anerkendte, med fremragende produktion af både hvidvin og rødvin. Derfor kan det ikke undre at Daniel Wagner i 2009 er blevet kåret til “Aufsteiger des Jahres” i den tyske udgave af Gault Millau, hvor han samtidig også er blevet tildelt sin fjerde drueklase. Denne gives til producenter i kategorien “Deutsche Spitze” – lige under “Weltklasse”.
