2017 Weisser Burgunder [07 18] (WITT22217A)
A little bit of skin contact adds structure to this fresh, lemon-scented mineral-driven wine, which has clean vibrant fruit and a fresh finish.
2019 Riesling [06 20] (WITT24219A)
Any fruit seen as not up to scratch was declassified into another estate wine, so instead of being the repository of lesser fruit, the quality here is extremely high. It is dense, juicy and fresh, with clearly delineated cool green fruit, lively citrus acidity and a salty creamy finish.
2019 Westhofener [14 20] (WITT34219A)
Grapes from young vines in the Morstein vineyard give a rich, broad earthy wine with pithy citrus fruit and delightfully fresh acidity, finishing on a long, slightly creamy saline note.
2018 Westhofener [14 19] (WITT34218A)
Young vines entirely from Morstein give a wine of melting elegance, with clear yellow fruit and a cool green note, leading to a juicy salty finish.
2017 Westhofener (WITT34217A)
Young vines from Morstein and Absterde give yellow stone fruit flavours and some weight. There is balance, ripeness and delicious bright citrus acidity, as well as an elegant mineral finish.
2019 Niersteiner [15 20] (WITT36219A)
Vines in Nierstein are rapid ripeners, and tend to give broader, fatter wines. This was fermented partially in steel rather than oak casks to slim down that tendency, and it is fresh and pure, with some yellow fruit, raspberries, notes of iodine and a very fine juicy ripe pithy finish.
2018 Niersteiner [15 19] (WITT36218A)
So rapidly do vines in the red slate soils of Nierstein ripen that this was harvested a full ten days before the Morstein GG. The grapes are sourced from young vines in the Orbel and Ölberg vineyards, whose red slate soils give – guess what – red fruit. There is lots of spice, power and depth here, with fresh acidity and a broad salty finish.
2018 Aulerde GG [16 19] (WITT42218A)
The warmest site in the estate's portfolio, with rich marl soils on a sandy clay base. The vines were planted in 1951. This is forward, ripe, pure and accessible, with lovely lemony intensity and brightness, very juicy yellow fruit, smoky mineral flavours and long hot salty length.
2017 Aulerde GG [16 18] (WITT42217A)
The warmest site in the estate's portfolio, with rich marl soils on a sandy clay base. There is an abundance of tropical fruit - peach, mango and pineapple - plus juicy lemony acidity, an elegant minerality and a long easy finish.
2018 Kirchspiel GG [17 19] (WITT44218A)
Situated just above the Aulerde in a shallow east-facing amphitheatre which catches the first sun, the soil is mostly limestone with some loam. This is a wine of depth and power, with pure vibrant cool green fruit, a note of spice, brisk lemon flavours and good salty length.
2017 Kirchspiel GG [17 18] (WITT44217A)
Situated just above the Aulerde in a shallow amphitheatre which catches the first sun, the soil is mostly limestone with some loam. This gives a cool, lemony note to the spicy floral fruit, and there is richness, vibrancy and delightful mineral tension leading to a long fine salty finish.
2018 Morstein GG [19 19] (WITT48218A)
The coolest vineyard in the line-up, with clay soil on a rocky limestone base giving a powerful rich wine that will need time to unfold. Always the most backward in the line-up, it is seamless, ripe and long, with a melting intensity and lots of weight, effortlessly supported by a finely wrought salty mineral structure and a very long finish indeed.
