Riesling 'Reserve Dry', Hermann J. Wiemer

Riesling 'Reserve Dry', Hermann J. Wiemer

This wine spotlights unique characteristics from all three of Wiemer’s vineyard sites. Small selections of grapes are meticulously chosen from specifically identified lots, which are fermented separately and then blended to create an exquisite balance of juiciness, freshness, and minerality. It is 40% Josef, 40% HJW, and 20% Magdalena fruit, fermented dry, and finishes with a 0.8% RS and 12.5% ABV.

Review:
Sourced from three estate vineyards (15% HJW, 20% Magdalena and 65% Josef), this reserve offers ripe aromas of apple, pineapple and apricot that are delicately perfumed with ginger and blossoms. Rounded in feel, the palate shows pineapple and peach, lifted by reverberating jolts of lemon peel and white tea. It shows great texture and depth, ending dry and stony.
