Mainly peaches, apricot, green pear. Some citrus and pineapple ... High acidity and saline kick ... Great exponent of Alvarinho but not as complex as their Spanish counterpart. Still great !! Love it !! ... More please ! (Serve chilled) — 3 months ago
Intensidade e equilíbrio em um blend de 4 uvas e predominancia de Shiraz, resultando em aromas frutados, com notas de especiarias e leveza floral, com bom corpo e saída suave, mas marcante. Complexo e com bom paladar. — a year ago
In the presence of the 17' Schönleber AdL, there should not have been another riesling that outclassed it during the night... But then this appeared. Young as it may be, KP's Hipping approaches perfection. Dumbfounding!
I think Jean and David at MFW described this perfectly, so I'll just leave it here:
This 2017er Niersteiner Hipping GG delivers a beautiful nose where reductive elements including minty herbs, smoke, bacon and needle provide the frame for some glorious scents of grapefruit, tangerine, candied lime, fresh almond and coconut. The wine has the purity and lightness of mountain water yet its complexity and density on the mid-palate are just stunning. One can feel the intensity from the high levels of dry extracts but these are magnificently wrapped into spicy and salty elements. The length and impact in the finish are stunning. The after-taste seems to last for minutes. The wine is almost painfully dry at this stage, but the sheer freshness, intensity and complexity are simply breathtaking. This grandiose expression of dry Riesling may well turn into wine perfection in a decade: It is THAT impressive! — 2 years ago

Dark plums & blackberries, blood, iron, violets, pronounced black pepper, some crushed rock, too.
Delightfully surprising on the palate - light & smooth yet quite austere & with great purity at the same time. Beautifully poised, fresh, with finely grained tannins and loads of of character. What a wine! Must be peaking right now. — 7 months ago
