2020 Weingut Wittmann Morstein Riesling Grosses Gewachs Rheinhessen, Germany
Rated 98 points James Suckling
If you have enough patience, this will turn into one of the greatest dry rieslings of the vintage. A tight rose bud in the nose and on the front palate, but then the wine expands in an almost supernatural fashion as it flows over the palate. Staggering minerality at the totally focused finish. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from 2024.

Wittmann's iconic 2020 Morstein GG is deep, intense and flinty on the stony and iodine nose. Round and dense on the palate, this is a juicy but also massive and powerful Morstein that is still tight and bitter on the finish, asking for all our patience. Tasted in Wiesbaden at the end of August 2021. (SR)
