Community Tasting Notes (10) Avg Score: 92.9 points

  • The wine is clear and brigh with a pale lemon colour and presence of legs. The nose is faulty (reduction) and developing, showing medium+ intensity aromas of ripe pineapple, lemon peel, green apple, peaches, hints of honey and hints of sewer that disappear after some aeration. The wine is sweet in the mouth with a high refreshing acidity. It has a low delicate alcohol and a medium+ body. It has pronounced intensity flavours of ripe pineapple, lemon peel, green apple, peaches and hints of honey. The reduction fault is also noticeable in the mouth in the form of stagnant water notes. The finish is medium+.

    It is a very good quality wine with a nice flavour concentration, a fresh acidity balancing both the sweetness and the fruit concentration and it has a pretty decent finish. However it could be more complex. Can drink now, but it has enough acidity and fruit concentration to develop more complexity in 10+ years.

  • Lemon, vanilla and green apple in the nose, nice supporting acidity, very low alcohol. Great Spätlese!

  • Apple, pear, sea spray and minerals. Lovely lift to the palate, with impressive fruit purity. There is a high level of apparent sweetness but the acidity is excellent in providing balance. Give it some time and it should really impress.

  • Josh Kurek's birthday bash (Corkbuzz, New York, NY): Off the list at Corkbuzz. AP #7. Surprisingly sweet on the nose, almost late harvest. Red apple and pear, almost cidery with great spice. Pure and almost translucent. Almost sugary. Pretty on the palate. Young, apple, brown-baking spices, sweet and juicy. Good balance. A little plush for me - but it took me a while to get to it and it may have warmed up (small pour). The finish shapes up nicely: very winey and with apples. Probably needs time to resolve its sweetness. Nose - 5/6, Palate - 4.5/6, Finish - 5/6, Je Ne Sais Quoi - 1/2 = 15.5+/20.

  • 7,5% abv. So primary that it showed very awkwardly even though the other wines certainly weren't old! Completely in pieces. Hold.
