Emmerich Knoll Riesling Ried Pfaffenberg Kabinett 2016

Availability: Out of stock


"Fresh lime and white peach are garlanded in iris and accented with seed and pit piquancy on the nose. The palate offers correspondingly animating citricity and piquant counterpoint to succulent ripe white peach. Musky inner-mouth perfume follows all the way through a brightly refreshing and mouthwateringly salt-tinged finish in which the fruit and flowers alternate almost kaleidoscopically with crystalline stony impingements. Drinking window: 2018-2023. 93 points

The Knolls avoided any significant frost damage and ended up with a relatively normal-sized crop. “Ripening was quite drawn out,” said Emmerich Knoll senior, “so we didn’t finish picking until mid-November.” Sporadic rains in October caused the berries to take on water several times, he reported, but each time it dissipated before it could have any adverse effects. “If it hadn’t been for that phenomenon,” he noted, “we would have harvested many of our parcels earlier. But I have to say that we were rewarded in those instances where we waited.""
