Robert Weil, 2015 Robert Weil Kiedrich Turmberg Riesling Trocken

"Deep veins of slate and crushed mineral drive this concentrated Riesling. Dry in style with a slightly voluptuous mouthfeel, it showcases pristine layers of white peach, nectarine and lime flavors, enveloped in minerality. It’s beautiful already but likely to improve further from 2021, holding well for at least another decade beyond."
Wine Advocate
Robert Weil, 2015 Robert Weil Kiedrich Turmberg Riesling Trocken

"The 2015 Kiedrich Turmberg Riesling Trocken offers a deep, intense, very cool and mineral, but calm bouquet of crushed and melting stones, along with stewed stone fruits and flinty aromas. The attack on the palate is clear, fresh and piquant; the wine pure, dense, powerful and very straight, finishing with lots of salt and concentration. The wine has great balance and expression, and certainly a great ageing potential up to 20 years."
Robert Weil, 2015 Robert Weil Kiedrich Turmberg Riesling Trocken

"An archetypical Kiedricher Berg performance opens with bittersweet gentian and iris perfume allied to quarry dust and ocean breeze. The satiny palate conveys a memorable impression of chomping on flowers and foliage as well as licking chalk. Juicy lime and grapefruit offer refreshment, while a striking, gripping finish features chalk, salt, iodine, and the mouthwatering savor of toasted shrimp shell. At 13 percent alcohol, this displays fullness, but thankfully neither heaviness nor heat."

Kiedrich Turmberg (“tower hill”), a separate slope adjacent to the Gräfenberg vineyard, is rated as premier cru. The German wine law of 1971 had incorporated Turmberg into the Gräfenberg, but in 2005 it was reinstated as an individual, classified site. The steep, southwest-facing site has a slate base with a thin topsoil layer composed of stony, gritty phyllite mixed with loess and loam. It produces very fine, elegant wines that are less massive than their counterparts from the Gräfenberg. Turmberg is wholly owned by Weingut Robert Weil. The Turmberg Trocken (dry) is bright and pure, with a lovely herbal tone that is characteristic of this site. It has a finely focused mineral structure and a juicy grip on the palate.
