Künstler Hochheimer Kirchenstück Riesling Trocken

This “GG” site – justifiably so – is available as a sort of “2nd-wine” that used to be called Kabinett Trocken until such heresy was disallowed. I offer the outstanding GG below, and it is outstanding – but I love this one more. It is a perfect meeting of petals and stones, like plum trees blossoming on a rocky escarpment. Barely 12% alc, it leads with fruit and then the tenderest reminder of mineral and then a jot of white hyacinth, all in a heart-renderingly cool creamy texture.
