Kuehling-Gillot, Niersteiner Pettenthal Riesling Trocken GG, 2008

I came across this great Rheinhessen Estate around the end of last year in a tasting of German Groesses Gewaechs in Siegburg. Its wines strike me with great mineral, ripe fruit and  smooth round texture, very typical to Rheinhessen.

Color: Light yellow gold

Nose: Smoky, dry-woody and petrol nose with lots of spice. Refined smell of exotic fruits, white peach and grapefruit. Subtle hint of flower in the background add this wine elegance.

Mouth: great mineral supported by full exotic fruit flavor. Very smooth, round and chewy texture with good balance and concentration. Finish like a good GG with mineral that grips and linger on your palate.
