Schlossgut Diel Pittermännchen Riesling Gg 2012

External Review:

Dried apricot and fresh lemon aromas with botrytis accents of honey and spice. Bright, frozen-fruit acids and a fruit paste of peach, apricot and plum load the palate. This is remarkable for sheer density and for its simultaneous intensification of both Beerenauslese and Eiswein character. Dried fruits, chewy fruit skins and stark, bright acidity are backed by enormous sweetness in the finish, but a note of wet stone is still there to mark the wineandrsquo;s slate underpinnings.

Schlossgut Diel:
The historic map from the year 1901 divided the vineyards situated in the Prussian part of the Nahe into three land tax categories.

The historic map from the year 1901 divided the vineyards situated in the Prussian part of the Nahe into three land tax categories. Even at that time, Goldloch, Burgberg und Pittermännchen were recognized as top sites and taxed accordingly. In 1997, the Prädikatsweingüter - an association of vintners dedicated to the production of high quality wines with distinction abbreviated as VDP - made it a standing rule in their statute that the most renown single vineyard sites can only be used in combination with the Riesling grape and in compliance with strict quality criteria.

Orchard fruits and citrus in the nose. This was harvested nearly a month earlier than a couple of Diel’s 2002 Spatlesen, and it shows in the fine clarity of fruit and minerality. The sweetness just supports the peach, apricot, lemon and grapefruit flavors on the palate without obscuring the underlying notes of slate. Polished and juicy in a finish that adds an attractive note of cinnamon stick.

Seductive. Ripe, forward and spicy, with exotic hints of orange, apricot and honey. It's all backed by bracing acidity, but needs some time to integrate. Best from 2004 through 2015.
