Wagner Stempel EMT Riesling 2018
The 2018er Riesling EMT comes from a parcel planted with 50 year-old vines in the original part of the Siefersheimer Heerkretz (EMT is not the name of a parcel but refers to the name of the previous owner of this particular parcel), and was fermented and aged in stainless steel. It delivers a beautiful refined, airy, and finely aromatic nose made of candied grapefruit, lime tree, floral elements, herbs, and some attractive reductive elements. The wine offers good grip and intensity on the focus and straight palate. The ripe and playful acidity makes for a focused and racy feel in the very long finish. There is still a hint of tartness which needs to smooth away in the currently rather assertive after-taste. 2024-2038.
