Winemaker Notes

The Wittmann Estate Riesling Trocken is harvested by hand from estate-owned vineyards around the village of Westhofen. It is fermented with native yeasts and matured in large, neutral oak casks. The wine shows a deep, stony aroma, with an elegant structure and bright citrus juice that leads to a lingering, piquant finish.

James Suckling
What a beauty for this category! Wonderful, mirabelle nose, then a concentrated and beautifully proportioned palate with lively, citrusy acidity keeping everything bright. Super finish! From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Drink or hold.

Tasting Panel

Fresh, racy, and juicy, with a lime nose, tangy acidity, and uplifted flavors of lime and citrus; snappy yet warm and charming.

Wine Enthusiast

Dry in style and light as a feather, this perfumed Riesling wafts of orange blossoms and lime zest. Racy acidity is offset by mouthwatering grapefruit and white peach flavors on the palate. A fantastic entry-level offering from a consistently outstanding producer that’s at peak now–2023 but likely to hold further still. Editors’ Choice.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Riesling Trocken is bright, very clear, deep and intense on the precise, reductive and slightly flinty nose. On the palate, this is a juicy, well-concentrated and silky-textured yet firmly structured dry Riesling with lingering salinity and lovely mineral purity. Very long, perfectly round and highly stimulating. 12% alcohol. This is Wittmann's estate wine, and 60,000 bottles were produced, so 30,000 less than in 2018. Tasted in March 2020.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
