The ’16 iteration of the Steinacker is even more finessed, with its 8g/L acidity showing a more even/playful sense of filigree detail, but still plenty of salty, stony refreshment and focus. It is bone dry, 12.5% alcohol, and outstanding. My note: “More floral, stonier, cooler, chiseled style (relative to the Nussriegel). WOW. A rockhead delight, still filigrée in the style of the vintage.” Another little * awarded here. For white Burgundy/Chablis lovers who prize the sense of electric, limestone driven minerality, this is your pony. Ride it.
From their website: “Cool and refeshing, aromas of stone fruits, pomegranate and mint. Influenced by the lime-rich soil, very mineral and forceful with excellent length.”
