For Gut Hermannsberg 2016 literally closed with fireworks! On Sylvester the fantastic news about Robert Parkers latest ranking for Germany‘s exceptional vintage of 2015 arrived, crowning this extraordinary successfull year. Our 2015 vintage Rieslings received fantastic marks, on top the 2015 Schlossböckelheimer Kupfergrube Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese which fetched the perfect score of 100/100 points. That’s just about the limit!

“A rich and intense elixir with endless finish and divine finesse”

Here is what Stephan Reinhardt, responsible for Germany, Austria and Switzerland as well as Alsace, Champagne and the Loire valley in Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate team, writes about this rich and intense elixir with its endless finish and divine finesse:

„The 2015 Schlossböckelheimer Kupfergrube Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese was “made from perfect raisins with 236° Oechsle“, said Karsten Peter. The wine offers an enormously rich and concentrated bouquet with natural fruit aromas of stewed stone fruits along with flinty and unfermented tea aromas. This is beautifully precise! On the palate, this is a rich and intense elixir, a generous, velvety and viscous-textured Riesling with perfect fruit ripeness and mineral/salty acidity. The finish is endless and the finesse is divine. A great, great TBA of which just 25 liters were made, and some of the bottles will be auctioned one day.“
