Philipp Wittmann has become a legend in his own lifetime,” wrote Anne Krebiehl MW in her 2019 book, The Wines of Germany. “His Rieslings have an alluring saltiness that draws you in, as well as purity and an inherent coolness. He is amongst Germany's best.” Philipp’s ancestors have been winegrowers in the old market town of Westhofen since the mid-1600s. His father Günter put the estate on an organic footing, and it’s been a member of organic farmers' association Naturland since 1990. Philipp then took the step to go biodynamic in 2004.
Peach, citrus, mint and dried flowers. It’s juicy but also firm and chalky, grilled lime and green apple crunch, fetching mouth-perfume, and an intense and very long finish. Dynamite.
