2017 Kruger-Rumpf Estate Riesling Trocken

SKU #1441434 Vinous

Outer quote mark Sourced (as was its vintage 2016 A.P. #27 predecessor) primarily from the quartzitic Kapellenberg and Rheinberg sites, this year’s cuvée incorporates also some fruit from the geologically complex Dorsheim Burgberg. It was raised half each in tank and large cask. High-toned evocations of bruised apple skin and lime zest mingle with honeysuckle perfume. A firm feel reinforces the pleasantly invigorating, albeit faintly astringent impingement of tart and zesty fruit skins. This finishes animated, refreshing (thanks to plenty of primary juiciness rushing-in) and with grip. (I have referenced the registration number to avoid confusion with a generic cuvée sold in the German market; but that latter wine, which lacks the VDP imprimatur, relies on contracts with friendly neighborhood growers rather than on estate fruit.) (DS) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

K&L Notes

Stephan Reinhardt writes of the 2017 & 2018 vintages from Kruger-Rumpf: "Luckily, the low pH levels compensated the low acidity perfectly in 2018, and it's impossible to say which of the two vintages was the greater one here. The 2018s have more power but are fascinatingly clear, whereas the 2017s are impressively concentrated. I tend to say the dry 2017s are finer than the 2018s, whereas the 2018s are bright and the better off-dry and fruity-sweet wines, but as you can see, there are exceptions, so even this is no rule. In any case, there are more 2018s to buy than 2017s, and if you are a fan of this family domaine that Georg Rumpf has established among the best in the Nahe valley, you need your favorite wines from both vintages anyway."
