Sourish on the palate. The high acid vintage character definitely shows here although not to the point of being distracting. Fresh and light bodied. I preferred the roundness of the 09. Not particularly distinguished but good all the same for its level.
A small step above the basic Qba. Hint of sweetness with loads of acidity. The acidity gives it a sense of precision. Rather lacking in the complexity factor though. Enjoyable but not particularly distinctive.
Dark yellow. Nose is ripe and very alluring. Palate as expected from the vintage was ripe and intense. Some might feel that it is clunky but I like the character here. Good freshness coupled with great concentration. A little matured flavors here and could easily be mistaken for a Beerenauslese.
