If somebody presented this to me as a village wine from a top producer then I'd believe them, because this has a ton of herbal and chalky character at the long finish and is one third of the total Wittmann production! STUART PIGOTT, jamessuckling.com

Sourced entirely in Westhofen's calcareous soils and fermented and aged predominantly in (large) oak, the 2016 Riesling Trocken has an intense, citrus-yellow colour and opens with an aromatic bouquet of ripe, lush Riesling aromas with floral and delicate chalky aromas. On the palate, this is silky-textured, very elegant and balanced Riesling with a medium body and a pure, salty, well-structured, dry finish with good grip and purity. This is Wittmann's liquid philosophy of pure and calcareous Riesling from biodynamically farmed, top vineyards in calcareous soils. STEPHAN REINHARDT, The Wine Advocate
