Hexamer, Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg ‘Quarzit’ Riesling Nahe 2012

Terry Theise and Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY. 

This is AP # 24 13.

A single-parcel bottling from a side valley in the Rheingrafenberg that sits on quartzite.

Emerald. Some aromatic yeastiness and smoke still. It’s a wine of high definition fruit, its forty grams/liter of residual sugar allied to prominent acidity. Mirabelle, peony, and chartreuse with a salty grip. The finish strings through the tether. Now.
