“Where would the Rheingau’s tradition of high-end Riesling dessert wines be today if it weren’t for Wilhelm Weil’s modern masterpieces in the style?” Stuart Pigott, Best White Wine on Earth: The Riesling Story
Weil is widely considered one of the true greats of the sweeter Prädikat styles. One of the keys to this estate’s success with these wines is that the mountainous, rocky setting of the Kiedricher Berg vineyards allows for a perfect balance between natural sweetness, mouth-watering freshness and pungent, intense minerality.
This wine is staggeringly beautiful. The grapes for Weil’s Auslesen were harvested without any botrytis influence and as you can read in the review, it looks like a case of no harm done! These are the kind of iridescent wines that have helped shape Rheingau’s legend for the past two centuries.
