Schlossgut Diel Riesling Eiswein 2002

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Quince, apricot and candied lemon peel notes are kept lively through the dense texture thanks to the vivid acidity in this delicate yet determined eiswein. There’s a hint of mineral on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2015. 145 cases made.

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.

This comes from sites other than Diel's three “crus.” Despite a touch of horseradish on the nose and sharpness of acids on the palate, this manages to knit itself thanks to sheer complexity of flavor, oily richness of palate presence and density. Jellied red fruits, marmalade and pit fruit jam fill the palate and overflow into an impressive and incisive finish that plays salty minerality and bright acids against jammy and lightly caramelized fruit flavors. Potential 2 stars.
