"In the end, taste boils down to a question of personal preference, and although 2015 was generally judged to be one of the best vintages in a long time, in the particular case of Kerpen’s Blauschiefer I find that the mineral expression of 2016 does its name more justice than the prevalent fruit of 2015. A rich saline quality is carried off well by a creamy texture, delivering the blue slate without any sharp edges. 16.5/20 points. (MS)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: All our vinyards provide the preferred conditions to grow the "queen" of white wine grapes - Riesling. The combination of the soil dominated by slate and the south facing slopes, as well as our climat and the minerality are unique in the world. As a result our Riesling wines show a wonderful balance of fruit and acidity, have a low alcohol content, and huge ageing potential.
