Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten Riesling Trocken, von Winning
This is vineyard that faces due east and has chalky clay and sandstone soils, which sits above the Leinhöhle just below the woods—perhaps an advantage in the new climate era? It was formerly known as Waldberg but was renamed after WWII to sound more romantic. This is a classified Grosses Gewächs site but Andreas and Stephan have decided to label it is as the German equivalent to 1er Cru, Erste Lage.
Soil type: sandstone
fermentation: 30% wood, 70% steel
SOS : 1 / ++
This was literally astonishing. I never anticipated such quality from this site, I mean serious WOW; soursop and ginger and talc in an enticing bouquet; explosively expressive on the palate, like some cool spice-drenched pudding; perfectly balanced and insanely attractive.
