"A wonderful flavor of ripe apples, mirabelles, peach, lemon a little pineapple. Touches of jasmine and a hint of passion fruit are discernible. This Riesling is a mineral, almost salty Riesling with a brilliant fruity acidity. The Rottland soil characterized by gray slate retained its moisture well in the fall, so the grapes could withstand the long fine weather period in late autumn without the stress of drought. A monumental, very extravagant wine. Serve with creamy gratinée potatoes, baked veal sweetbread with fresh morels, roast goose, pike balls with spinach, air-dried ham and sausages. Or with oysters." —winemaker
"The 2013 Rudesheimer Berg Rottland Riesling trocken Hinterhaus (now a Grosses Gewächs though it is not designated as such except of the bottle which wears the GG sign) has an intense yellow color and lovely concentrated aroma of fully ripe (and dried) white peaches and piquant Riesling berries along with flint stone flavors. It is a rich and full-bodied, powerful and intense yet frisky and elegant Riesling with a piquant fruit expression and a marked acidity as well as a fruit intense length quoting ripe yellow nectarines and peaches. Though it does still not fly, this excellent Riesling will surely benefit from further bottle age." —Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
