The higher and flatter exposition of the Niederberg suggests that it may be one of the cooler sites, benefitting perhaps from the warming climate. The Niederberg is a tightly wound spring of a wine, precise and cutting. There is more citrus here compared to Halenberg; the wine feels more immediately vivid and articulate in its youth. Texturally this is just screaming for food, it has the kind of edges that grip onto whatever you are eating and won’t let go. This wine is stately and king-like in its combination of gentle silky body with commanding power in the engagingly tightening spicy finish.
