Wine Advocate
Robert Weil, 2015 Robert Weil Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling GG

"The 2015 Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling Trocken is the Grosses Gewächs of the domaine and opens with a great purity, deepness and finesse, with mineral and flinty flavors intertwined with discreet citrus flavors. On the palate, the GG shows a great elegance, vitality and finesse. It is a powerful and salty wine with a firm mineral backbone, great purity and a firm structure. Lots of salt and grip here, but also a mouthwatering stimulation."

"Cutting streaks of lime and lemon intensify the earthy, wet riverrock notes in this complex dry Riesling. There’s plenty of pristine peach, yellow cherry and green apple fruitiness on the palate, but it’s more about the rippling textures and mineral tones that take center stage. It’s beautiful now, but concentrated enough to improve further with age. Drink from 2021"
Robert Weil, 2015 Robert Weil Kiedrich Gräfenberg Riesling GG

"Musky floral perfume of peony and narcissus mingles with scents of kumquat, grapefruit, papaya and ripe pear. The satiny palate conveys similarly decadent inner-mouth perfume and tropically ripe fruit, with the zest and piquancy of citrus peel rendered forcefully by the wine’s 13 percent alcohol. More aggressive phenolics vis-à-vis this wine’s Klosterberg and Turmberg counterparts are typical for Weil’s Gräfenberg Grosses Gewächs, but are here partly assuaged by a glossy palate feel. And while this wine’s formidably sustained finish incorporates a major dose of mineral salts as well as alkali and crushed stone, the effect is more austere and marginally less mouthwatering than that conveyed by either the corresponding Turmberg or this vintage’s overachieving village-level Kiedricher. Not for the first time, I ask myself whether Weil’s Grosses Gewächs unnecessarily sacrifices charm in the interest of seriousness. I am hoping for an opportunity to compare several years old Gräfenberg and Turmberg in parallel."

Notable for steep, south-facing slopes in a protected valley along a climate-moderating river, this area has the ideal conditions for growing ripe, full-bodied Riesling. Vines are sustainably farmed and planted on phyllite, loam and loess soils. Hand-picked fruit is fermented and matured in large, neutral oak casks. (1833 cs)
