Hexamer Riesling Quarzit Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg 2010
Handcrafted fruit-driven wines of terroir. Anti-varietal in the best sense, the same way that Condrieu isn’t merely viognier; the best from the Rheingrafenberg are wines of deep site-character as rendered by riesling. Splendidly mineral wines into which fruit of great charm is interwoven. Fresh, with exceptional purity.
External Reviews for Hexamer Riesling Quarzit Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg
This plush style shows ripe peach, apricot and baked apple flavors, with hints of anise and lavender. Long, spicy finish. Drink now through 2018.
Surprisingly less vivacious and razor-sharp than many a previous rendition but still loaded with succulent fresh lime and pear, Hexamer’s 2010 Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Riesling Quarzit offers overtones of honeysuckle and mint, finishing persistently and with a bit of extraneous sweetness (although Hexamer has been dialing that back in recent years). Part of this wine, incidentally, fermented spontaneously; part was yeasted. Enjoy it over the next 6–8 years.
