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

Stunning nose of ripe pear, mandarin orange and smoke. Impressive concentration for the challenging vintage with a nice juiciness and good chalky minerality. Long, surprisingly complex and harmonious finish, the acidity already beautifully integrated. From biodynamically grown grapes with Respekt certification. Vegan.


RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

From Westhofen's stonier soils and assembling 28 different vats, Wittmann's 2021 Riesling trocken Estate is the former Gutswein, but it's already a wine that is more than just a Riesling pleasure. The white-yellow colored wine offers a clear and spicy, pure and mineral nose with ripe, elegant fruit with herbal nuances. Mouth filling, round and textured on the palate, this is a juicy yet pure, saline and finessed, very stimulating dry Riesling with delicate lemon bitters on the finish that reveals some ripe white-peach aromas on the aftertaste. This was vinified in large oak and stainless steel (70/30) and aged on the full lees for nearly six months. Tasted at the domaine in August 2022. 11.5% stated alcohol. Best After 2022 Rating : 91+
