We were very surprised that Knipser wines are so durable, especially from such a hot vintage 2003.
The Knipser 2003 Laumersheimer Kapellenberg Riesling Spätlese is a ripe wine with honey, blossoms, a medium-body, density, minerality, and a long finish. It is still drinkable even after 3 days as openend bottle in the fridge. 17/20 points.
The Knipser 2003 Gewürztraminer & Riesling Auslese is a beautiful combination of rose petals, spice and sweetness and the Riesling acidity that gives the wine a nice freshness. 16.5/20 points.
The Knipser 2003 Dornfelder*** Barrique is one of the top Dornfelder. It has cherry, chocolate, blackberry, slightly animalic, a full-body, soft tannin and a medium long finish. The wine has some Rhone style. 17.8/20 points.
