2017 Hexamer "Porphyr" Riesling Feinherb Nahe

SKU #1423879 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark An off-dry riesling that's brimming with the smoky character that porphyry soil produces. The balance between the peaches and nectarines and the lively acidity on the medium-bodied palate is spot on. With more power at the finish this would have rated even higher. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (7/2018)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Smoky struck flint wreaths, white peach, fig and lime on the nose. The palate impression is glossy and lusciously-fruited, with a bittersweet, crunchy hint of cassis berries adding to its appeal. The residual sugar is supportive, yet not perceived as outright sweetness. Hints of smoke persist intriguingly in a lingering finish. This lovely example of “hidden sweetness” in Riesling – coincidentally harboring the same 17 grams of residual sugar as its vintage 2016 predecessor – weighs in at slightly higher alcohol (exactly 12%) but preserves a nice sense of lift to accompany its animating juiciness. The source this year is half from Hexamer’s Schlossböckelheimer In den Felsen and half from a nearly adjacent portion of Schlossböckelheimer Mühlberg owned by a semi-retired grower whom Hexamer says farms conscientiously and is proud of the grapes he sells.(DS) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
