This smells really wonderful but Riesling is perhaps the last thing that comes to mind from the scent: it is all acacia (where did that come from in an amphora aged wine?) and cloudberry. It is wonderfully moreish and the evaporation rate is alarmingly high; high but friendly acidity, wonderful grip. As opposed to the purity of fruit of a normal Riesling, this one is intense and savoury and seems to be more about secondary characteristics than pure fruit. So no points for this being true to the grape, but lots of points for being a "freak" wine that was friendly and engaging and just great fun to drink.
12,5% abv. It smells of pure cloudberry. It is wonderfully moreish and the evaporation rate is alarmingly high; high but friendly acidity, wonderful grip. When served blind I cannot understand why this is so divisive - it is intense but not freaky. Outstanding stuff. It's the sort of stuff that transcends analysis.
