  • Lighter golden color. Complex nose of slate/flintstone, yellow fruit, citrus, peach, mint and a touch of smoke. On the palate there is tons of saline minerality again and a very fresh and pure fruit of mainly yellow fruits. It's medium+ bodied but dense, with high acidity and just a little bit of residual sugar (still feels dry though). Long and complex finish. Year after year, this is one of the best dry Rieslings I know in Germany. And 2011 is an additional step up from my perspective. What a great wine and a fantastic value!

  • Really solid. The acidity and weight are nicely balanced. Nice salinity, minerals and orchard fruits. Delicious, very versatile and a terrific value.

  • I picked up a case of this a while back, but hadn't gotten around to pulling a cork until today. Light yellow-gold in the glass; I love the nose here, with slate nuances, a saline note, crisp apples - a lot going on here right now.

    Sweet & sour fruit on the palate, with nice persistence on the finish. Light-bodied. The nose is more interesting than the palate today, as the wine has not fully knit itself together yet and comes across a little "angular". I like the potential here, though.

  • Dry with aromas/flavors of white flowers, white peaches and lime. Tons and tons of minerality/stone/graphite notes let its terroir shine. Medium+ acidity and a fairly long finish. Drink now or over the next five years.

  • Paired with a couple fresh caught large mouth bass from the pond behind our house. The fish were breaded and fried in a cast iron skillet on the grill. The nose on the wine was a little subdued initially, showing just a little citrus and hints of minerals and rocks. With some air, a subtle flinty, petrol note emerged. On the palate the wine was crisp with lots of acid. The wine showed almost an electric, effervescent quality initially. With some air it smoothed out some and showed a little richer with a touch of tart apple to go along with the citrusy fruit. The wine still stayed dry and crisp though. Overall an enjoyable wine, but not as exciting as the first bottle we had. I think my review on that one might of been a little too glowing. I think I will wait two years before I open another one.
