Tasting Notes

From the oldest, up to 50-year-old vines of the estate and cultivated on partly reddish phyllite soils in altitudes up to 300 meters, the 2020 Kiedrich Klosterberg Riesling Trocken was aged on the full lees until late July for the first time (instead of April, like in the former vintages). This brings a remarkable, delicate, subtle and articulated, very elegant and flinty, almost Mosel-like Riesling bouquet of bright fruit aromas (mango, passion fruit) intertwined with notes of crushed iron and stones. Juicy, piquant and stimulatingly salty on the palate, this is a very elegant and substantial Riesling with juicy, refined fruit and a long, intense and refined finish that is carried by a highly stimulating mineral acidity and serious structure. This is an excellent Klosterberg, most probably among the finest I have tasted from this vineyard. Very long, piquant and highly salivating. 13% alcohol. Tasted at the domain in August 2021.
