Weingut am Stein Stettener Stein Riesling VDP Grosses Gewachs
"...dry, fruity and vivacious with a slightly breezy note on the finish"
- Franconia, Germany
Weingut am Stein's Grosses Gewachs (GG) wines are from the Stettener Stein, which lies along the river Main approximately 20 km downstream from Würzburg, Stetten has a very long tradition in Viticulture and the Stettener Stein vineyard is one of the oldest in the Franconian wine region. Hand harvesting, cool fermentation and a long maturing period on the fine yeast results in wines of fine complex fruit and a delicate acidity. The wines show a youthful freshness and vivacity with the ability to age. Vinification is in steel tanks, concrete eggs, amphora and a few wines see small French barriques. "Let's start with Franken this year - the 2016 Silvaner and Rieslings are brilliant. Ludwig Knoll is at the top, but who is still even wondering? The wines from Weingut am Stein are leading. The Silvaner and the Riesling from Stettener Stein are very expressive, complex, salty and of great length." 94-95/100 nikos-weinwelten.de (Aug-2017) "The GG Riesling from the Stettener STEIN by Ludwig Knoll is super dry – at least it seems to be so. However, there is a significant additional moment: the phenolics. This is outstanding and gives the wine a long powerful finish. The acid vibrates at the same time. A fantastic wine, which is at the very beginning of its development." wuertz-wein.de (Aug-2017)
