Notes from the Winemaker:
A super-refined dry Riesling from a top-rated vineyard and a historical family winery in Germany’s Saar valley.
This is the Zilliken estate’s top dry wine, from the best parcel of the Rausch vineyard in the village of Saarburg. Delicate aromas of ripe melon, lemon curd and meadow flowers and a cool herbal austerity open a nose of breathtaking beauty and elegance. Deep, refined orange, passion fruit and candied lemon dance across the nearly vertical palate, while the grippy texture is redeemed by a pliable, persistent acidity

Grape Variety: 100% Riesling | Alcohol: 12.0% | Residual Sweetness: 8.5 grams/liter | Total Acidity: 7.6 grams/liter | Total Production: 433 cases

Ratings & Reviews


95 Points - James Suckling:
"The pink-grapefruit, mint and spring-blossom character is just beginning to emerge from this tightly wound and concentrated dry white with just enough body to give this a really elegant balance. Long, cool, lime and mineral finish. Excellent aging potential. Better from 2021." - (13 Aug, 2020 )

90-92+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Tasted as a pretty clear and finished sample in April 2020, Zilliken's 2019 Rausch GG opens with a generously aromatic yet elegant and well balanced bouquet of fruit and slate aromas with a kiss of Traminer. Dense and mouthfilling on the palate, with a certain astringency on the finish, this is a pretty sweetish GG with elegance and texture. It is mouthfilling and salty-piquant on the crystalline finish." - Stephan Reinhardt (13th Aug 2020)
