2020

WA 95+: From the coolest part of the Gräfenberg and aged on the full lees for 21 months, the 2020 Monte Vacano is pure, fresh and slatey on the intense but fragrant nose. On the palate, this is a dense, highly energetic, finely tannic, substantial, slightly creamy yet very persistent and stimulatingly salty Riesling with lots of grip and complexity yet still not showing all of its potential. Very promising, though. 13% stated alcohol. Natural cork.

JS 98: Enormously concentrated and structured, this giant dry riesling is only just beginning to open. There’s plenty of candied citrus here, but the more balsamic notes are what give it the excitement (also because they aren’t exactly typical for this generally charming vintage). Enormous textural complexity and a long, dark mineral finish. Limited production. Bottled after 22 months on the full lees in large neutral oak without sulfur.

2019

WA 96: Aged on the full lees over two winters and racked in late July this year (so after 22 months sur lie), the 2019 Monte Vacano is deep, intense and refined on the iodine and flinty, highly complex and precise nose that represents the phyllite terroir of the steep Lay plot of the Gräfenberg amazingly well, especially after a day in the opened bottle. On the palate, this is a highly elegant, crystalline, enormously complex, dense, round and rich as well as juicy Riesling that reveals a firm and sustainable structure with fine tannins from renewed large oak barrels that also add a certain sweetness to the finish that is enormously salty, long and tensioned. This is another impressive Riesling from the Gräfenberg, and it is richer and more powerful than the more filigreed Burg Scharfensteiner.

JS 99: This starts as discreetly as Ravel’s Bolero, the peachy aromas of the Rheingau now just beginning to emerge from behind their veil of yeast from the long maturation in barrel. Then this wine, like Bolero, steadily climbs to a very exciting and expressive conclusion. Then you experience the mineral side of this grape and region in great purity.
