Ooohhh ... what a wonderful wine. Riesling at its best. This is both very dry and ever so slightly laced with a hint of sweetness ... almost teasingly so. It's aged enough so that the texture is slightly viscous and it retains enough acidity so it does not taste flabby, but lively and fresh. This wine, with some slightly spicy food, is heavenly!!!
Beautifully mature and a bit reductive in the bouquet which also shows yellow fruits. On the palate ripe yellow fruits as well, a touch of sweetness. A very good wine and I am a Knoll fan, but one way or another this bottle did not really impress. 89
Almost a little green hue to the golden color. A touch fresher and cleaner than the gruner with more cut. Tons of stone- mineral, fresh lime, grapefruit, and citrus pith. Richly textured but with enough acid to keep it fresh. This has great impact on the palate, and when served a bit cooler shows better. Full bodied and it carries it well. This has a more-ish flavor and is quite long on the finish. 90pts
aromas of lime, white peach and white flowers and strong chalky minerality that closed down after a couple of hours. taught and angular with tons of acidity, with a sheen texture and peach and tropical fruits on the palate. this one seems to be meant to go for the long haul and i'm sure it will be a beauty. i doubt i will open another bottle for at least 3-4 years.
A luminously vibrant, chalky, white-fruited beauty, cuts like a light saber and holds so much glistening metallic stoniness under the surface that the mouthfeel is downright gritty. This has exactly the same ingredients to it as the '88 and '94 Knolls we enjoyed recently at Seasonal which rendered everybody either totally speechless or unable to contain their enthusiasm.
