Stephan Reinhardt from Wine Advocate (R. Parker): 92 pnt
"The 2018 Oestrich Riesling Trocken Quarzit is sourced in the Doosberg, Lenchen and Klosterberg and opens more discreetly than the Rheinschiefer but deep, pure and crunchy. Lush and salty-piquant, with lingering salinity and purity but also round and juicy fruit, this is a well-balanced yet compact and tight, already excitingly expressive Riesling that needs some months to harmonize. The finish is long and intense with serious grip. Bottled in April, tasted in May 2019."
Drink Date: 2020 - 2034
When it comes to the finest dry Rieslings from Germany, Peter Jakob Kühn is one of the first names to mention, even though the biodynamic domain in Oestrich has been directed by his son, Peter Bernhard Kühn, for a few years. If there are any doubts, there has never been a better chance to learn about what is possible in Germany beyond reduction, sulfur and malic acidities.
2018 has been "an absolutely fantastic vintage for us," says Peter Bernhard. "The berries tasted unbelievably good and had this specific gleam. Many barrels developed an absolutely unique character that forced us to leave them alone instead of blending them with other barrels."
In the past years, the Kühns thought intensely about the factors of time and silence for the development of their wines. "One of the most important steps for us in recent years has been the decision to age our single-vineyard wines for up to three years. This has made us free and happy people and brought us to the decision to release our estate and village wines only two years after the harvest," starting with the 2019 vintage that won't be released before September this year (2020). The upcoming releases (in May) will be the 2018 Hallgarten Riesling, the 2018 Oestricher Klosterberg and the 2018 Hallgartener Hendelberg, whereas the 2018 Spätburgunder, 2018 Lenchen GG and 2018 Hendelberg "R" will be released on September 1st.
The 2016 and 2017 grands crus (whether named "GG" or "Unikat") are definitely among Germany's finest dry Rieslings.
