Notes from the Winemaker:
The outstanding quality of the Kiedrich Gräfenberg (“Hill of the Counts”) vineyard was first documented in the late 12th century. It is a steep, southwest-facing slope in a sheltered side valley of the Rheingau, with deep to medium-deep stony soil made up of phyllite inter-spersed with water-retaining layers of loess and loam. Spätlese (“late-picked”) is produced from very ripe, healthy grapes, without botrytis. It is a wine with epic minerality, nuanced fruit aromas, and an artful balance between crisp acidity and a rich natural sweetnees.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Based on completely healthy fruit picked at 97° Oechsle, the 2017 Kiedrich Gräfenberg Spätlese is clear, very ripe and balanced on the fruity, comparatively warm scented nose, where flinty and mineral flavors of crushed stones represent the terroir of the Gräfenberg. Enormously ripe and lush, almost creamy on the palate, with very elegant abundance, good density and tightly woven structure, this is a highly delicate, mineral as well as opulent Gräfenberg with remarkably elegant fruit and lingering salinity. Very long. Tasted in August 2018." - Stephan Reinhardt (30th Nov 2018)

95 Points - James Suckling:
" A concentrated but very elegant Spätlese with mandarin oranges, white peaches and a touch of mint in the nose. On the palate this is still tight and highly strung, like a fully wound pocket watch. Very bright and very long finish. Drink or hold." - (11 Sep, 2018)

94 Points & Editors’ Choice - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
Intensely stony notes of crushed slate and earth permeate through this invigorating, light-footed Riesling. Crisp green-plum and white-grapefruit flavors are sweet and tart, calibrated by spine-tingling acidity. It is currently a zesty, pristinely fruity wine that should gain earthen intensity well through 2030.

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Crisp apple and grapefruit flavors introduce this spätlese, while peach, mint and candied orange notes emerge midpalate. Crunchy in texture and firm in structure, this flirts with austerity for now. Wait a few more years for the different layers to unravel. Best from 2021 through 2030. 580 cases made." — AZ (Web Only - 2019)
