"Very attractive yellow-peach character and elegant harmony on the generous, rather succulent palate. However, this is rather quiet at the silky finish. Drink now. Screw cap."
(2g RS/7.5g acid/12.5%) Niersteiner Hipping is Gunderloch's smallest grand cru, sourced from an extremely steep portion of the vineyard. Spontaneously fermented, barrel-aged, and picked at punishingly low yields. The nose is typical Roter Hang: herbal, stony, savory, sunny, with exotic florals like lilacs and jasmine tea. It is intense and really exciting! Firm and straight in the mouth, locked in by its grid of acids, structured like sculpted stone. An archetype of Hipping; you could teach a class with this wine.
