Press & Reviews
"From 56-year-old vines, the 2020 Hochheimer Stielweg Riesling Alte Reben VDP. Erste Lage offers a coolish, pure and refined yet also intense and complex nose with spicy and floral notes as well as lemon aromas. On the palate, this is a rich and intense yet pure and vital dry Riesling with a long, intense and complex finish that reveals a serious mineral and phenolic structure. For true wine lovers, Künstler's Stielweg is one of the domaine's icon wines (or hidden gems): it is insanely intense and finessed but always vibrantly fresh and stimulating in its mineral drive and tension. From really old vines, the 2020 has been an extraordinary vintage. 13% stated alcohol. Screw cap. Tasted in June 2022."
