2017 Siefersheimer Heerkretz Riesling Grosses Gewächs, Wagner-Stempel, Rheinhessen

Most remarkably about this wine is its tension, with slightly peachy fruit and balanced with energy and depth. So cool and well balanced. It’s both elegant and weighty, evidence of harvest one week later than other sites here.

2017 Siefersheimer Heerkretz Riesling Grosses Gewächs, Wagner-Stempel, Rheinhessen
Weingut Wagner-Stempel

Daniel and Catherine Wagner, the 9th generation at the helm here, have farmed organically for ten years now, across 24 hectares of vines. In 2017, they lost 50% of the crop, with tiny yields of just 25 hectolitres per hectare. With an intent focus solely on dry wines, they mostly grow Riesling but also have a few other local varieties, both white and black grapes. With just ten thousand cases produced each year, their production remains small, with quality soaring.
