Sensational winemaking from the upper Nahe - Helmut Hexamer is doing everything right; handcrafted fruit-driven wines of terroir. The best from the Rheingrafenberg are wines of deep site-character as rendered by riesling. Splendidly mineral wines into which fruit of great charm is interwoven. Fresh, with exceptional purity.
Terry Theise says, "...totally different from any previous vintage; drier, greener and mintier – in any other year you’d think it was feinherb – it’s sorelly and somehow made me think of mercury or quicksilver; there’s a snap of acid but only a snap, and a pleasing sponti note for all you natural-yeast druids."
