Kalkofen Riesling Grosses Gewachs, von Winning
A sheltered site that is surrounded by sandstone walls with a former coral reef (limestone) beneath. Kalkofen sits on a plateau above Deidesheim and is a Grosses Gewächs site.
This is always the bomb of the GGs, the strongest and most voluminous. Roasted corn, popped sorghum with brown butter, broiled peaches and soft persimmon over a backdrop of a stone wall seething in the hot afternoon sun. Also, like happy dogs. My mind works oddly at times…. – Terry Theise
