The Great Schintzel Dinner at Eric's and Deb's: NICE! loved this. opened with some sweet apricot on the nose with a load of minerality to boot. the id is a sleek spatlese - full of spice and nerve. dense but soo much finesse. the grapefruit peaks through but it is virtually obliterated by ripe pear and white peach. with time - more mineral - the wine was biting back. long rich finish wih perhaps ust a hint of RS. DAMN! One of the best trocken wines i have had - in league with Keller and Whittman
Klaus-siege (At my place.): Appealing nose with a whole basket of fruits and deep slatey minerality. Full bodied with fine creaminess in the texture. Ripe, thick flavours with well detectable residual sugar sweetness. Dense, serious midpalate accompanied by lots of weighty acidity, impressive, long finish. Profound, delicate and rounded wine.
Wow! Drank this wine with my friend and prefered wine dealer Robert at a BBQ this week (grilled salmon and grilled green asparagus wrapped with Serano ham). We both were blown away from this wine and both rated him 97 points. Sweet fruits, nice acid and mineralic notes in a combination you will have difficulties to find again in this quality. A real blockbuster - enjoy now or for another 3-5 years.
