2019 Gunderloch Niersteiner Pettenthal Riesling Grosses Gewächs Rheinhessen (Previously $70)

SKU #1534375 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From a cooler side valley of the cru, the 2019 Riesling trocken Pettenthal GG is pure and flinty on the nose as well as displaying coolish terroir aromas. Lean and rich at the same time, this is a coolish, pure and silky-textured, salty Riesling with enormous grip yet also tannins. The finish is slightly austere. This is still a baby, and I am curious where the wine is going to. Will it reman austere or gain some texture? Tasted at the domain in August 2020. (SR) 93+ Inner quote mark (4/2021)

Outer quote mark The aromas of dried chamomile, mint, oolong leaf tea and delicate yellow fruit give this GG a very special style. Not for those seeking power or weight, rather for fans of delicacy. In fact, it feels almost weightless at the long, dry finish. Inner quote mark (8/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Gentle notes of local vineyard fruit add an appealing touch to the animating expression of fresh and green-vegetal aromas. A mere hint of caramel can be interpreted as the result of vinification in wooden barrels. On the palate the Pettenthal bristles with energy, instigated by reverberating acidity and a solid block of salty minerality. The alcohol content may be modest, but the extract is high. 18.5/20 points (MS) Inner quote mark (8/2020)
