Hexamer Riesling 'Porphyr'

Now we’re in the volcanic soils of Schlossböckelheim, and ’18 is a markedly mineral vintage of this perennially smoky, peachy, 5-spice critter – and in good years it’s really perfect Riesling, the proof of its innate greatness at an affordable everyday level.

Review:
Smoky struck flint and brown spices inflect ripe peach, Persian melon and pineapple on the nose as well as on the lush but buoyant palate of this subtly sweet bottling. Tang of pineapple core, piquancy of peach kernel and sizzle of clove serve for welcome, stimulating counterpoint on an effusive, lusciously lingering finish transparent to smoky mineral nuances.
