Deidesheimer Paradiesgarten Riesling 1er Lage Trocken, von Winning

Another singular discovery; who even knew that this usually mundane vineyard could give such wines? Since 2012 there hasn’t been an “ordinary” wine from here. There’s an aroma that tilts in the direction of Sauvignon; redcurrant, woodruff and lemonbalm and resin. Often this spreads out with age and gets more passion-fruity, but for now it’s slinky and juicy, pointed and long in its angular herbal way. -Terry Theise

Tasting Notes

Until Von Winning I don’t think anyone knew the potential of this upslope vineyard in Deidesheim. It’s an amazing value considering what it offers for the pittance it ciosts; wry, grainy and excellent, open-armed and terroiré, but terroir detached from “mineral,”: more ginger, guava and pineapple; hints at woodiness and resolves into a suave finish of pink peppercorns. — Terry Theise
