Other Reviews....
The 2020 Kirchspiel GG opens very clear, bright and chalky on the spicy, Chablis-like nose that indicates a lovely complex Riesling from limestone rocks. Juicy, round and intense on the palate, this is a mouthful of wine with fine tannins and a generous nature. The finish is salty and vital, very long and complex and indicates great aging potential. Tasted in Wiesbaden at the end of August 2021. Drink 2026 - 2040.

Very ripe and very fine peach and citrus fruit, but the complex herb and spice notes are even more intense. Tightly wound and very pristine for this rather warm region, the spice returning at the super-long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from 2023.
