"As usual, the dry Riesling from the HJW vineyard is more closed and less effusive than its sibling from the Magdalena site, but it makes up for that with delicate aromas of spring blossoms and a hint of fresh pineapple. As lively and as pristine as a mountain stream on the palate. The power is underplayed, except at the long lemon-mineral finish. Better from 2018 and with at least a decade of ageing potential.

"The 2015 Riesling HJW Vineyard is a dry, single-vineyard Riesling with seven grams per liter of residual sugar and 12.5% alcohol. From Hermann Wiemer's original 1977 plantings (they do have older vines, from Josef Vineyard, planted by Taylor in 1974 and purchased in the 1990s), this is the coolest site on the estate. It shows. By far the brightest of the dry Rieslings, it has a fresh and lively feel that most of the others do not, while not quite showing the concentration of the Magdalena this issue (or last year's HJW). Still beautifully wrought, very elegant, precise and focused, this should age very well. Give it a couple of years to settle down if you can, although there is no pressing need to wait. There were 200 cases produced."
Planted in 1976, our HJW Vineyard features Hermann’s original plantings on Seneca Lake. Mature vines, combined with the site’s shallow topsoil and shale bedrock, produce lower yields, resulting in expressively vibrant flavors. Higher elevation and a greater distance from Seneca Lake contribute to a cooler growing season, resulting in a leaner, more austere wine with intense flavor and an excellent aging potential. These core characteristics of the HJW vineyard are expressed in this exclusive vineyard-specific wine. Invigorating crispness and an appealing balance of flavors combine with an unprecedented minerality, which carries into an impressive and enduring finish.
