Tasting Notes

“Amphibolite seems to give a kind of Sauv-Blanc twang to its Rieslings; we see it again in Hiedler’s Steinhaus. Usually this bottling is something of an “extra” in the sequence. It’s a relatively new acquisition of Nigl’s, and I’ve offered it because it’s a fascinating terroir variation. Often I’ve worried it made the offering too crowded. This ’17 overcame me. It’s certainly the best vintage yet. The caraway-seed thing is still present but now in the form of a flan; the wine is more determined and less lyric than Hochäcker, playing in a different key, but there’s a ton of balsam and iris, solid phenolic strut and scratch, and finally just absurd length.” Terry Theise
