Welschriesling Saybritz 2017
A must fermented and oxidized aged Welschriesling, that at first glance has little typicality of the variety.
“But it’s worth to snap up this scarce commodity. Weninger´s Welschriesling is the strangest interpretation of this grape variety I´ve ever tasted. It is usually in 99% of all cases made into simple drinking wine. Franz Reinhard Weninger does not do that. It seems he wants to show us all, what you can get out of his great-aunt´s Welschriesling.
In the glass it shows light licorice notes, smoky kitchen herbs, neat acidity firm to the bite, in the mouth everything but banal, very characterized by the soil, highly elegant, almost like Burgundian Chardonnay. I search in vain for the dumb booze wine style of this grape variety. So that´s Welschriesling? I´m bowled over!”
