Riesling Kiedricher Trocken, Eva Fricke, Rheingau, Germany 2015
A more focussed wine than the Rheingau, Eva draws on her single 3 ha plot of vineyards that lie above her village of Kiedrich, on sandy, loess, loam, along with scatterings of quartz.
Here we’re farther from the river Rhine, compared to her vines in Lorch, more continental if you like, giving more weight perhaps.
There’s a definite limy quartz gleam to the wine, and more structure too.
Such clarity, with notes of greengage, of quince, of a fine tilth and sapidity.At a glance
