2005 Hexamer Meddersheimer Altenberg Riesling Spätlese Trocken (Germany, Nahe)

Leave a comment
Germany, Hexamer, Nahe, Riesling


Was open since yesterday and kept in fridge overnight. Pale yellow color that’s nearly white. Fresh nose of white peach, jasmine, and crushed rocks. Completely dry palate that plays on apple, gardenia, and minerality. Finishes strong. The dry Rieslings are my favorites in Hexamer’s lineup. Recommended and a super QPR when bought directly from the Weingut (which this was).

What are your favorite trocken Rieslings from Germany?

P.S. Photo is not from this wine but same producer.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
