Wine Enthusiast/ Perfumed notes of honey and tangerine are accented by savory accents of pollen on the nose of this complex Spatlese. Concentrated stone fruit and pineapple flavors fall lusciously on the palate, offset by sprays of acidity. It's pristinely fruity yet nuanced and mineral. Enjoy now for its freshness, but it will improve through 2027 and hold for another decade.

Classic Weil, this pairs intense minerality with dense, rich, ripe fruit, everything presented with clarity. It moves through the mouth like a race car, fast, quiet and sleek, the acidity powering it through a long, resonant finish. It’s not so much sweet as it is concentrated, easily able to stand up to a roast pork shoulder or lobster bisque. This comes from one of Weil’s top sites, a steep southwest-facing slope in a sheltered side valley, where the phyllite soils—a stone between slate and schist—are interspersed with deeper, softer loess and loam.
Very fresh and juicy-tasting, with fresh-cut green apple, dried apricot and lemon curd flavors. Savory in the midpalate, with a crunchy finish that offers ginger snap accents. Drink now through 2030. 660 cases made.
Always stunning, the Spatlese (“late picked”) from KiedrichGrafenberg is a massive wine of bewildering depth and complexity,with many layers of gorgeous fruit that unfold on the palate. It is astately wine with power, harmony and impeccable balance.
