Knebel 2016 Riesling

With Matthias’ entry into the VDP, he felt that 2016 had to be another step up in quality at the estate, and this basic riesling is no exception. It used to be sourced from the Terraces, but also parcels upstream in Leiwen. Not anymore. This, the “Von den Terrassen,” and the new “Alte Reben” wines were the revelations at this estate for me in 2016. It’s very expressive, with passionfruit, grapefruit and a slate-filled and salty finish. It overdelivers.
