A great dry Riesling, very complex, displaying great, smoky crystallised minerality with a flinty character – unmistakably Felsenberg. Selected from the best steep parcels around Felsentürmchen in the midst of the magnificent Schlossböckelheim Felsenberg site. Outstanding Riesling terroir with a soil of red volcanic igneous rock, a melange of porphyry and melaphyr.
"From Schlossböckelheim's stony, volcanic soils, the 2016 Nahe Riesling Felsenberg "GG" 'Felsentürmchen' offers a very pure and delicate bouquet of crushed stones and ripe seed fruits. Lush and intense on the palate with generous but finessed fruit, this is a very elegant and well-structured Riesling with great balance and a long, salty-piquant finish. Very long and powerful yet pure and very charming." 93+ Stephan Reinhardt wineadvocate.com
