VDP Gutswein
Riesling 100%
Bursting with white peaches and spring flowers, this Riesling Tradition 2022 has a wonderful juiciness, thanks to the interplay between vigorous acidity and a touch of sweetness from the unfermented grapes. Spring freshness and a good wet stone character on the palate. Very clean finish. To drink or to keep. This vintage was characterised by a summer with high temperatures and little rain. The 2022 vintage began with a very warm winter and rainfall that helped replenish the soil's water reserves. A cold spell in April slowed down plant development, leading to bud break on 20 April, in line with the historical average. Nature immediately showed its preference for high temperatures, plenty of sunshine and plenty of water in the soil, accelerating growth to flowering in early June, about a week earlier than historically expected. With the arrival of the drought, the vineyards slowed down again, despite record temperatures and Mediterranean sunshine levels. Therefore, the pace of vineyard development remained moderate throughout the summer. On 6 August, the ripening threshold was exceeded in a reference plot and the harvest began on 20 September, respectively ten days earlier than the historical average. This natural brake on assimilation is bound to become increasingly important for the quality of the grapes and the wine produced from them. As global warming imposes increasing water scarcity, work must continue to prepare the vines in the countryside so that they are thirsty but never completely dry. The Kiedrich hills help the vines a lot, as they can draw on the water reserves of the forests above them during the increasingly dry and hot years. By mid-September, the grapes looked fantastic and tasted even better. Then came the rains. To our great relief, the Kiedrich hillsides once again showed the extraordinary drainage quality of the phyllade soils. The water flowed naturally and thanks to the meticulous work of Rober Weil's team throughout the year, which laid the foundations for loose bunches and strong air circulation in the vineyards, keeping the fruit completely healthy and on the vine until physiological ripeness. Both the quality of the grapes and the sensory analysis of the musts and young wines indicate an exceptional vintage, from the estate's gutsriesling to the village's ortsriesling and the erste and grosse lagen wines of the individual sites.
