2018 Weingut Knoll Riesling Kabinett Ried Pfaffenberg Steiner. Electric.
I had the pleasure of having an unplanned visit with Emmerich Knoll after getting into a chat with him at one of his vineyards. It is a surprisingly informal home-centered operation - we sat in his kitchen for an entire afternoon while he led me through a vineyard exploration of his wines. What particularly impressed me was the range of spiciness he gets from all the parcels of land. Unfortunately, some of the quantities are tiny but I managed to walk out with an armful of wines I found especially interesting.
