Notes from the Winemaker:
The Estate Riesling Tradition is a classic rendition of the traditional off-dry style that made the Rheingau famous. The 2016 Riesling Tradition has an enveloping aroma of lemon and stone, leading to a rich attack on the palate. It starts with lush fruit and minerals, then finishes with long, focused length. The balance and structure of this wine are simply superb.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Rheingau Riesling "Tradition" is the counterpart of the Riesling trocken, bottled with a bit more than 20 grams of residual sugar. A bit sweetish today but with a nice mineral structure and vitality, this is a superb, racy-piquant and tightly woven Riesling that can age for 20 to 40 years." - Stephan Reinhardt (29th Dec 2017)

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Orange blossoms and crushed mineral tones perfume this delicately off-dry Riesling. Light bodied and spry, the palate is taut, with deeply penetrating high-toned acidity and crunchy peach, tangerine and lemon flavors. Finishes long on notes of lemon zest, fennel and crushed earth." - Anna Lee C. Iijima (4/1/2018)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A minerally style, with firm acidity offering support to the flavors of ripe pear, lime and blood orange. Moderate length. Drink now. 5,800 cases made." – AZ (Web Only - 2018)
