2012 Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Grosses Gewachs

2012 Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Grosses Gewachs


Here is Gilman’s review:

” The 2012 Rausch Grosses Gewächs is a very worthy follow-up to the magical 2011 GGwhich I think will probably go down as the greatest dry wine ever produced during Hanno Zilliken’s long and illustrious career- as it is another very refined, pure and precise and bone-dry expression of the brilliant terroir of the Rausch vineyard. The 2012 GG comes in at a cool and racy 12.5 percent alcohol and is another legend in the making, soaring from the glass in a youthful mélange of grapefruit, lemon, wild yeasts, a beautiful base of slate minerality, incipient smokiness, orange zest and a hint of petrol. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and seamless, with a great core of fruit, ripe acids, great focus and cut, and a very long, refined and quite youthful finish. While this is probably not quite in the same league as the magical 2011 version, it is another absolutely brilliant dry Riesling and another wine destined for legendary status. 2020-2060. 95.”
