Immich-Batterieberg Riesling Enkircher Batterieberg 2010

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

A tangy, dry example of a plump riesling. Notes of eucalyptus come across the palate dominated by apricot peel and mountain flowers, opening to hints of quince. Blue slate is unmistakable on this exceedingly complex wine. Batterieberg is the best-known of Enkirch’s vineyards and a monopole of Immich-Batterieberg. Its name—which means “demoltion hill”—is a tribute to the dynamite used, in the 19th century, to blast a rocky outcropping, leaving a vineyard in its wake. Today the vines are old and ungrafted, and the wine, aged in a combination of tank and cask, is powerfully structured.
