2019 Riesling [02 20] (KNEW06219A)
One of the best estate Rieslings we tried this year. It is poised, balanced and smooth, vibrant and dense, with juicy citrus fruit tinged with smoky spice flavours, and a long fine polished finish.
2018 Chardonnay, Holzfass  (KNEW14218A)
For those used to Burgundy, this is quite something. Pure limestone soils, all French clones and 10% new oak give a lean, lemony wine with a juicy core, a delightful lightness of touch and lovely purity and finesse on the finish.
2019 Appenheimer Riesling (KNEW24219A)

2018 Goldberg [15 19] (KNEW42218A)
From a warmer site, with a higher clay content in the soil. The fruit is rich and fat, but there is a cooling smooth stony minerality and a brisk lemony acidity that keeps it pure, lean and elegant.
2017 Goldberg [14 18] (KNEW42217A)
From the estate's warmest site, this has distinct tropical notes of pineapple and mango, kept on track by vibrant citrus acidity and a gentle, pithy minerality.From a warmer site, with a higher clay content in the soil.

2018 Hundertgulden [19 19] (KNEW46218A)
So named because of the prices it once fetched, this vineyard is made up of chalky loam on a limestone base. It is a precise, finely wrought, lean and flinty wine with fresh herb notes, vibrant citrus acidity and a long, lean and very smooth salty finish.
2017 Hundertgulden [16 18] (KNEW46217C)
2016 Hundertgulden [16 17] (KNEW46216A)
Named Hundertgulden - a hundred guilders - because in medieval times its wine was so valuable. Pure limestone and chalky loam soils give an intense, lean lemony wine with juicy grapefruit and very fine salty mineral flavours that linger on the finish.
2018 Steinacker [18 19] (KNEW48218A)
Red soils give a herbal, crisp lemony wine with notes of fresh nettles and redcurrants to go with the ripe yellow orchard fruit, and as the vineyard name suggests, there is a powerful stony finish.
2017 Steinacker [17 18] (KNEW48217A)
Steinacker translates as "stony field", and It's certainly that. The limestone soils are infused with iron oxide, which lends a spicy warmth to the cool green and citrus fruit. It is smooth and rich, and there is delicate fine minerality on the finish.So named because of the prices it once fetched, this vineyard is made up of chalky loam on a limestone base, and gives a lean, citrusy wine with a silky minerality and a long fresh salty finish.

2019 Auslese [27 20] (KNEW76219A)
2019 Steinacker Auslese [28 20] (KNEW80219F)
Steinacker is the estate's best vineyard, and is reserved for dry wines. In 2019 September rain facilitated the development of botrytis, which was so fine that the family used the affected grapes to make an Auslese. We should be glad they did: there is a lovely delicacy to the cool- green lime-tinged floral fruit, which though dense, is lifted by a hefty dose of bright lemon acidity, leading to a clear, precise finish.
