Deideheimer Leinhohle 1er Lage Riesling Trocken, von Winning

I had always placed this among the “GG”-level sites in Deidesheim, but Andreas tells me it slipped off that lofty platform after Flurbereinigung and is now a “mere” 1er Lage. Regardless, I love it and am glad to offer it. The wine is really earthy and purple – violets, lavender – there’s very little similar to it except maybe the Rheingau’s Winkeler Jesuitengarten (see Spreitzer…) – this shows an exceptionally complex florality as it breathes – not fruit, not earth, not mineral – and is uncanny and long. This one’s coming home with me.
