The 2017er Riesling Trocken Der Hirt was made from grapes harvested at 98° Oechsle in the prime but underrated Valwiger Herrenberg. It saw some overnight pre-fermentation soak before being fermented and aged for 18 months in wooden cask. The resulting bone-dry wine (3 g/l residual sugar) was bottled with only 20 mg/l of SO2. It offers a big nose akin of a Viognier with camphor, mirabelle, herbs and spices. It is big and structured with quite some power on the palate. A surprising kick of acidity comes through on the palate. Despite the power and the alcohol (13.5%), the intensity of the flavors gives the wine some playfulness. It remains however a wine for lovers of baroque expressions of Riesling. Now-2022
