Wagner-Stempel, Siefersheimer ‘Von Porphyr’ Riesling Trocken Rheinhessen 2013

Wagner Stempel Vom Porphyr 2013 #1

This is AP#6.

Water pale. Still early days, so the acidity is pronounced; the expression, linear, bone dry, overtly mineral.  Heady perfume, reminds me of cape jasmine at night.  A bit phenolic but this will go.  The finish is tension-filled and smoky, the poverty of those shallow volcanic subsoils shining through in a dramatic mineral sheen.  From 2018.
