Fermented and aged 90% in oak (1,200-liter Stückfass), the 2016 Rothenberg Riesling GG has a clear, pure, deep and spicy bouquet that indicates great complexity and elegance. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, pure and very elegant Riesling with intense fruit, fine tannins and a long, intense finish. This Rothenberg is ripe, rich and lush but highly elegant, fresh and even finessed, with enormous salinity and a very long finish. Just 12.18% alcohol. This is a great Riesling that can age for 20, probably more, years. Great balance and complexity.
