About the Wine
The Klosterberg vineyard has the highest altitude of the three sites in the town of Kiedrich (the others being Turmberg and Grafenberg). The altitude and the stony soils give the Klosterberg wines a unique personality. Dry and warm conditions in the lead-up to harvest result in super-ripe berries, while cool overnight temperatures allow for acid retention.
The Robert Weil Klosterberg Riesling Trocken is a powerfully aromatic wine, both on the nose and the palate. It's aged on its lees for months, which adds texture, body and flavour. The wine exhibits very ripe notes of mango and passionfruit, as well as superb minerality and piercing acidity, all in remarkable balance. The flavour just goes on and on...
About Robert Weil
Weingut Robert Weil is one of Germany's, and the world's greatest white wine producers, focusing on just one grape variety - Riesling.
The estate was founded in 1867 by Dr Robert Weil in the beautiful village of Kiedrich, on the north side of the Rhine River, in the historic Rheingau region. Today, the estate is run by the fourth generation Wilhelm Weil, who meticulously oversees 90 hectares of Riesling, and wine releases across all sweetness formats.
Their greatest sites can be found in the foothills of Taunus mountains, the three famous vineyard sites of Kiedricher Turmberg, Kiedricher Klosterberg and Kiedricher Grafenberg.
These are epic wines, particularly the GG Grafenberg, and recent vintages are some of the best ever.
