"A Must Have"
2015 Wittmann Morstein GG

Posted by Joe Salamone

Morstein is one of the great vineyards in all of Germany.

Of course, it's Keller that's made the site famous in the U.S. Wittmann has to be considered the torchbearer of this fabled vineyard and in Germany he enjoys a huge reputation.

Morstein is famous for its laser focus and driving length. Wittmann's Morstein is razor sharp and possesses an incredible textural, muscular presence. The tightly coiled energy that Wittmann coaxes from the site is stunning.

Wittmann's 2015 Morstein is a brilliant example of this site. Morstein is an intensely limestone terroir, and the 2015 carries a nearly crushing force of chalky minerality. It possesses powerful presence and a lifted citrus-animated vibrancy. The tensile refinement is beautifully compelling.

The intensity and purity of the 2015 is in part a testament to Wittmann's biodynamic work in the vineyard and sensitive winemaking. In 2015, Wittmann's skill is center stage.

The quality of the Morstein is unmistakable. This is a single, small parcel. Please give us your maximum order and we'll do our best.

Stephan Reinhard, The Wine Advocate: "Wittmann's iconic 2015 Riesling GG Morstein comes along as a limestone rock incarnation of Riesling with concentrated fruits and lemon perfume on the nose. Fermented in Doppelstück (2,400-liter oak vats), the 2015 is cool and herbal on the nose, very chalky, citrus-like and beautifully concentrated. It has ripe pineapples aromas and crushed rocks. This is extremely well focused, pure and precise. Fresh and salty on the palate, this full-bodied and highly elegant 2015 is intense and juicy, but also taught and very piquant in the finish. This wine is long, persistent, very complex and salty on the finish. There is really good tension and grip here and the chalk seems to crumble on the palate. A promising and powerful Morstein that will further improve in the bottle. This is a Must Have of the 2015 vintage. The acidity is almost Mosel-like in its delicacy. The finish has great grip and tension. This is great wine. "Morstein is so complex, because we have so many parcels here and can compose like how we want. But the central part gives great wines in every year." Total production is 1,1000 liters."
