Kiedrich Turmberg Riesling Trocken is Robert Weil’s most intensely mineral-driven riesling. The thin, slate topsoil combined with a windswept cool micro-climate render wines of uncommon finesse and complexity. Aromas of chalk, talc, and white flowers along with telltale peach/apricot/apple. Bone dry, long flavors of stone fruit, grapefruit zest and an impenetrable earthiness make for exciting drinking.
Pour it with grilled swordfish, roast chicken or rosemary pork loin.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate/The 2018 Kiedrich Turmberg Trocken offers a beautifully coolish, clear, precise and flinty as well as herbal, intense and refined bouquet of ripe Riesling aromas and crushed stones. Lush and piquant, this is a highly elegant, salty, piquant and mineral dry Riesling with a long and tensioned, very fine and promising finish. This is a classic in the making and should age terrifically. Very, very long and full of salt and music. 13% alcohol. 22,000 bottles were filled in early May 2019. Tasted from AP 47 19.
Very graceful, this dry Riesling evokes concentrated flavors of nectarine, guava, jasmine and persimmon. Stony and minty notes add complexity and charm, firmed up by the acidity and structure. Ethereal finish. Approachable now, but will age. Best from 2022 through 2029.
