Helmut Hexamer Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Riesling Spätlese* 2006
Save $10.00 (22%)
Sensational new discovery on the upper Nahe, a young vintner doing everything right; handcrafted fruit-driven wines of terroir. Anti-varietal in the best sense, the same way that Condrieu isn't merely viognier; the best from the Rheingrafenberg are wines of deep site-character as rendered by riesling. Splendidly mineral wines into which fruit of great charm is interwoven. Fresh, with exceptional purity.
Ripe and fleshy, this Riesling offers peach and mandarin orange notes that stay defined by the vibrant acidity. Has fine length. This will come together nicely in time. Drink now through 2025.
