From the importer-

Konstantin Weiser and Alexandra Künstler (pictured above) are as soulful as the vineyards they farm; this is a micro-estate with only around 4 hectares total. They very literally do everything by hand, working the sites both organically and biodynamically. They are in the vines daily and it’s immediately obvious that this is where they’re most comfortable – it’s obvious that they love their vineyards.

This intimacy comes through in the wines. In fact, if we were to point to one producer who carries a similar message of staggering complexity and simple charm, it would be Willi and Christoph Schaefer. Both estates are tiny; both estates seem to easily, naturally make wines that are ethereal, bubbling with purity and subtle nuance. Both estates produce haunting, magical little wines that are worth their weight in gold.

The 2020er Wolfer Sonnenlay Riesling Kabinett was made from fruit harvested at 84° Oechsle on the original Schlossberg hill and was fermented down to fruity-styled levels of residual sugar (50 g/l). It offers a rather subdued nose made of cassis, herbs, spices, and floral elements which are eventually joined by more yellow fruits as it develops with air. The wine is as light as water on the palate yet packed with incredible refined and animating flavors and enhanced by a most beautiful ripe feel of acidity. The finish is juicy, gorgeously bitter-sweet, and hence full of tension. This fruity-styled wine bares more than a resemblance with the finest fruity-styled wines from the 1990s. What an incredible success!
