Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Alte Reben Caldo Infernale 2017

Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Alte Reben Caldo Infernale made from 100 percent Riesling.

Typical Devonian slate Riesling with fruity elegance and great durability. Big and rich wine with ripe peach and pear on the nose, honeyed, citrus and mineral aromas. Clean and pure, distinctive character. Very long finish.

Review:


"I loved the 2015, and the 2017 Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese Alte Reben Caldo Infernale is even better, offering a lush, rich, yet still vibrant style as well as gorgeous notes of honeyed nectarines, candied orange, peach, and exotic flowers. It packs plenty of sweetness and is medium to full-bodied, with solid acidity and a kiss of petrol and mineral nuances keeping it lively and fresh."

Leindl Riesling Zobinger Heiligenstein Kamptal 2017

Leindl Riesling Zobinger Heiligenstein Kamptal is made from 100 percent Riesling.

Medium yellow green. Fine nuances of ripe apricot, a hint of yellow apple, delicate herbs and spices, mineral Touch, hints of candied orange zest. Juicy, elegant, fine stone fruit, touch of finesse acidity, salty minerality in the finish, remains long, already well to drink.

Cold Fermentation. 
Aged on the lees for 12 months in Stainless Steel tank. No Oak. 
No ML

Review:

"A hint of dried pear and dried lime zest plays before juicier lime speaks. The palate has a similar tension between ripe, almost dried fruit richness, while zestiness tones it all down into taut slenderness. This is exciting, textured, juicy and totally moreish. There is something concentrated and pervasive that hits several pleasure buttons at once. Drink now–2035. - Anne Krebiehl MW"

A clear and very expressive nose with notes of black fruits, spices and licorice. The mouth reveals tanins that are already supple with a great balance.

Review:

Vignon's 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape looks to be the best example he's put together to date of this cuvée. Full-bodied and supple, it comes at you with layers of fruit, ranging from stone fruit and raspberries through to blueberries and cola.

Winery: Hahn

The Hahn Estate
The Hahn family has been in the wine business since 1650 and moved to Kobern, the present location, in 1892 to start a small winery. Konrad Hahn took over the operation in 1991, when his father retired, and works now with his Colorado-born wife Laurel Kerns-Hahn. The winery is recognized as one of the top estates in the region. The high quality of the wines is continuously confirmed by awards and medals received in regional and national as well as international competitions.

The Hahn Vineyard
The vineyards are located in Michelsberg, which is near the town of Piesport (Mosel Valley). In this most northern part, the Mosel valley is very narrow and the vineyards very steep. The warm micro climate and the use of terraces along the south facing slopes allows the vines to grow to full ripeness despite the northern location. The use of machinery is impossible and all work including harvesting is done by hand. The grapes for this wine were grown in slate soil, which is typical for the Mosel area and provides a unique minerality. The harmonious climate, warm summers and mild winters promote a long growing season providing fine fruit with balancing acidity and low alcohol.

A warm, but by far not as hot summer as 2003, continued into a beautiful sunny autumn. This allowed a perfect ripening of the grapes in 2005 vintage. Especially the always late ripening Riesling grapes achieved exceptional quality with must-weights similar to 2003 but with higher acidity levels and mineral concentration similar to 2004.

We view the 2005 vintage as the best vintage in our estate in years even though it is following several great vintages such as 2001, 2002 and 2003. We are very excited about this great vintage
