The dry 2015 Riesling Kinheimer Hubertuslay Auslese ** (White Capsule) is from very fine slate soils that give power to the wines (not in terms of alcohol, though). Cool and flinty on the nose, this is a very powerful, rich, concentrated yet pure, elegant and even finessed Riesling with remarkable complexity, salinity and finish. Yes, this is a powerful and rich but also pure and finesse-full Riesling that simply needs to age 5-10 years. In dry vintages like 2015 (and so many more in the past 20 years), the Kinheimer vineyards with their deep slate soils seem to become more and more important. Keep this village on your mind, you will get more and more great Rieslings from here in the future. - Stephan Reinhardt

Super-elegant wine with a lovely creaminess and a graceful finish that's at once silky and vibrant. A hint of smoky, yeast aroma indicates its extreme youth. Better from 2018 and will age at least to 2030.

A dry-tasting "two-star" Auslese that reflects Molitor’s recent acquisitions in his viticulturally underappreciated home town, this might not be the best wine to demonstrate the Hubertuslay’s profound potential (for that, experience the amazing “three-star” rendition), but it brims delectably with lusciously ripe pear, hints of fig and musky scents of peony complementing its fruity richness. At 12.5 percent alcohol, there is a lushness that, like the wine’s dominant fruitiness, is tempered by a stony undertone, leading to a soothingly lingering finish. - David Schildknecht

Vibrant and piercing stone fruit aromas are wonderfully complemented by streaks of mineral and saline elements. It carries some weight on the palate, but it’s offset perfectly by the ideal amount of acidity and pulsating energy that give life to the tropical and stone fruit flavors. So young but already offering so much pleasure at this early stage! With time in the bottle, the true beauty will emerge. This wine has it all, showing the quality of producer and vintage and will drink beautifully over the next 15+ years.
