Kiedrich Turmberg ("tower hill"), a separate slope adjacent to the Gräfenberg vineyard, is rated as premier cru. The German wine law of 1971 had incorporated Turmberg into the Gräfenberg, but in 2005 it was reinstated as an individual, classified site. The steep, southwest-facing site has a slate base with a thin topsoil layer composed of stony, gritty phyllite mixed with loess and loam. It produces very fine, elegant wines that are less massive than their counterparts from the Gräfenberg. Turmberg is wholly owned by Weingut Robert Weil. The Turmberg Trocken (dry) is bright and pure, with a lovely herbal tone that is characteristic of this site. It has a finely focused mineral structure and a juicy grip on the palate.

Big and strapping, with plenty of fresh acidity behind the apple, grapefruit and green peach flavors. Mineral and slate details show midpalate, bolstered by explosive notes of dried tropical fruits. Hints of white chocolate and cream emerge on the elegant finish. Best from 2019 through 2025. 2,200 cases made.

The 2015 Kiedrich Turmberg Riesling Trocken offers a deep, intense, very cool and mineral, but calm bouquet of crushed and melting stones, along with stewed stone fruits and flinty aromas. The attack on the palate is clear, fresh and piquant; the wine pure, dense, powerful and very straight, finishing with lots of salt and concentration. The wine has great balance and expression, and certainly a great ageing potential up to 20 years.
