Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Aged in a 5,000-liter oak cask, the citrus-colored 2008 Riesling Federspiel Vom Stein has been bottled no earlier than in December 2015, and would surely benefit from aeration. It starts with intense and concentrated fruit aromas on the nose, along with spicy/zesty flavors from the long aging; this indicates a deep, ripe and complex wine whose iodine nose reminds me a bit of Jura wines and solera-based Champagnes. There is a hint of leather and austerity on both nose and palate, but the lightness, freshness, purity, finesse and vitality is outshining, as is the intensity and complexity. There are no bubbles in this Federspiel, but there is a certain chalkiness, purity and yeasty complexity in this 12% alcohol beauty that makes me think of the finest grower Champagnes from the Côte des Blancs.
Between 10ºC and 12ºC
Aged for 6 months in 2.000 and 12.000 litres capacity wood vats.
