Weingut Robert Weil
Rheingau 2018 Riesling Kiedrich Turmberg Trocken

Wijngoed opgericht in 1875 door Dr. Robert Weil, die professor Duits was op de Sorbonne in Parijs. Eenmaal teruggekeerd in Kiedrich heeft hij met visie zijn wijngoed uitgebreid door in beginsel ook 2 lokale wijnbedrijven erbij te kopen en enkele wijngaarden van de graaf Furstenberg! Topreferentie voor de Rheingau!!

Kleur, Geur en Smaak

Helder goudgeel. De neus brengt comlexe tonen van rijpe kersen, abrikoos en pruim, vermengd met zwarte thee. Stevig bitterzuur fruit op het pallet, sappig met een florale dimensie. De mineraliteit zorgt voor een spetterende finale.

Gastronomie

Bij sushi, kreeft, vispaté met dille-roomsaus of bij asperges.

The 2018 Kiedrich Turmberg Trocken offers a beautifully coolish, clear, precise and flinty as well as herbal, intense and refined bouquet of ripe Riesling aromas and crushed stones. Lush and piquant, this is a highly elegant, salty, piquant and mineral dry Riesling with a long and tensioned, very fine and promising finish. This is a classic in the making and should age terrifically. Very, very long and full of salt and music. 13% alcohol. 22,000 bottles were filled in early May 2019. Tasted from AP 47 19.

2017 was already tremendously good for Robert Weil. Could 2018 beat this or, to be more realistic, come along? Yes, it could! At least 2018 brought another great series of Rieslings from roughly 100 hectares of vines in and around Kiedrich. The wines are shining indeed, displaying perfectly ripe and healthy fruit, with a freshness and balance I didn't imagine, given the obvious natural conditions, especially of the summer of 2018. How was this possible? Wilhelm Weil can convincingly explain to us why even the most problematic vintages can be great for the terroirs in Kiedrich. Without proving his thesis with his wines, it would be just marketing speech. With the wines, however, Weil is just terribly convincing. Also, in 2018, which he seems to favor even compared to 2017, he already knew to stop before the 2018s were fermented. Water reserves were very good in early 2018. After an early budbreak, spring turned straight into summer, which was dry and, luckily so, slowed down the ripening process, otherwise the harvest would have started even earlier. Wilhelm Weil said, "We picked picture-book grapes—grapes as I have never seen before. They were ripe and healthy but not too sweet and promised moderate alcohol volumes, which, at the end of the day, enabled us to keep the cool-climate character, even though the summer was anything but cool." The qualities are stupendous, even though Weil names 2018 a very good or even excellent but not an outstanding vintage. Sweet wines were difficult to produce because there was not much rot, if at all. "The greatest vintages have never been the generous wines, such as 2007, 2009 or 2011, but the rather moderate wines. 2018 was, seen objectively, so dry and warm as never before in history; however, the wines do not have the character of a warm vintage. The sugar level in the grapes remained moderate, and we managed to keep the natural acidity. How great the 2018s are in fact, we have to discuss in a couple of years," said Weil. Well, here is my opinion: 2018 has brought some of the greatest wines I have ever tasted from Robert Weil. Even the estate wine and the village wines are excellent and worth the price. The GG grand cru is one of the Rheingau stars and so are the sweet wines.
