Assembling grapes from the Kinheimer Rosenberg, the Dhroner Hofberg and the Oberemmeler Altenberg in the Saar Valley, of which 50% are old, ungrafted vines, the 2017 Riesling Detonation opens with a clear, precise and aromatic Riesling bouquet of perfectly ripe and concentrated fruit aromas intermixed with a crystalline and flinty terroir note. Silky, lush and elegant on the palate, this is a very fine and lingeringly salty Riesling that reflects the old vines and low yields of the top vineyards where the grapes were sourced. This is already an excellent wine with remarkable finesse and persistency. The finish is beautifully crunchy and salty and highly stimulating. Dangerous wine! Tasted in March 2019.
