2018 was the 30th consecutive vintage in which Weingut Robert Weil was able to harvest Prädikat wines of every ripeness level, including this legendary Beerenauslese.
Acidity: 11.9 g/L
Residual sugar: 256.0 g/L
Tasting Notes: Fabled Beerenauslese with sophisticated, botrytized fruit; opulent and simultaneously elegant, with a seductive, nuanced exchange between sweetness and acidity; a wine to put down and age for many years to come.
Vineyard: The late 12th century saw first mention of this renowned Rheingau vineyard as the 'mons Rhingravii' (the Mountain of the Rhine Counts); southwest-facing site with deep to medium-deep soil, predominantly stony, fragmented phyllite and dramatic inclines of up to 60 %.

"Picked with 190° Oechsle but without any botrytis, the 2018 Kiedrich Gräfenberg Beerenauslese opens with a concentrated and spicy yet very delicate and salty bouquet with candied lemon and grapefruit aromas. On the palate, this is a seamlessly textured, wonderfully fruity, fresh and elegant BA with lingering finesse and salinity as well as mineral vitality and freshness. This is a super clear and elegant, highly stimulating BA and one of the most fascinating I have ever tasted in the Rheingau." (Tasted in August 2019)
