Hexamer Quarzit Riesling

Hexamer’s Quarzit is sourced from a sub-section of the South by Southeast facing Medderheim Rheingrafenberg vineyard.  This section in particular is where the soil changes from sedimentary rock and sandstone to quartzite. The grapes are harvested by hand, fermented using native yeasts in stainless steel, and racked after 6 weeks of fermentation. The 2016 is a delightfully charming vintage with 38 g/l of RS.

Tasting Notes

This has become perfect over the past few years— much less sweet than it once was; now it is deep, multi-layered, crackery (rye and seeds), qrape-hyacinth aromas alongside cherry and plum-blossom; actually exciting wine, serious and diligent. — Terry Theise
