About This Item
Overview: Weingut Robert Weil is considered to be one of the Rheingau’s younger wine estates. It is located in the heart of Kiedrich, a village first documented in the year 950. Kiedrich Turmberg and Kiedrich Gräfenberg, the estate’s top vineyards, are among the finest sites in the Rheingau.
The estate cultivates 90 hectares (222 acres) of vineyards, of which 100 percent are planted with Riesling. Today, Wilhelm Weil, the great-grandson of the estate’s founder, carries on the tradition of uncompromising, quality-oriented vineyard and cellar practices – a tradition that has been the hallmark of the winery for four generations.
The Estate Riesling Tradition is a classic rendition of the traditional off-dry style that made the Rheingau famous. It is a cuvée from parcels that neighbor the estate's top vineyard sites in Kiedrich and Eltville. The mineral-rich soils of these vineyards consist of medium-deep stony, fragmented phyllite mixed with loess and loam. After the grapes are harvested by hand, the grapes are then fermented in stainless steel tanks until the fermentation is stopped with dropping the temperature.
Tasting Notes: Aromatically the wine is bright with lemon zest, stone fruits, and a hint of honeysuckle. On the palate, the wine is a touch delicately sweet, with just flavors of just ripened peaches and pears, refreshing acidity, and clean minerality.
Pairing:Chinese pork dumplings
