Produced in large, neutral oak casks for a rounder texture, the Riesling Trocken (German for “dry”) is a charming, fruit-driven wine, whose balanced, tangy flavors and food-friendly versatility mean that one glass is never quite enough.

The Robert Weil line of estate wines begins with this medium-bodied dry Riesling that shows the typical density and power of the Rheingau region, but is much more affordable than their ultra-classy single-vineyard wines. 

THE ROBERT WEIL ESTATE Founded in 1875, Weingut Robert Weil is one of the finest producers in the Rheingau region. Wilhelm Weil, the greatgrandson of the estate’s founder, carries on the uncompromising, quality-oriented vineyard and cellar practices that have been the hallmark of this elite estate for four generations. The Rheingau is a small section of the Rhine River valley, near the city of Mainz. Notable for steep, south-facing slopes in a protected valley along a climate-moderating river, this legendary wine region has the ideal conditions for growing ripe, full-bodied Riesling.

THE 2021 VINTAGE We were thankfully spared the most extreme weather conditions seen in Europe in 2021, but excessive rain remained a concern throughout spring and summer. This necessitated an unusually intensive set of vineyard management measures in order to secure good air circulation in the vines with additional canopy thinning, cluster thinning and green harvest. Good September weather helped deliver outstanding physiological ripeness. Our tireless work in the vineyards, and the extraordinary adaptability of the Kiedricher Berg itself, ultimately delivered not just ripeness, but also excellent fruit that was ideally ripe and healthy.
