Very light yellow. All lime at first with some underripe pineapple appearing. Light to medium weight, nicely layered feel. Dry, focused, and citrusy with zesty acidity and long soil-inflected finish. Excellent and no crime to open now or hold a little longer. Interesting to compare to the 2011 Knoll Smaragd we had last night-delicate and less dense, just as a German Riesling would seem after an Alsatian one!
Perfect pairing with the scallops. Showing a bit of fat on the palate, but still vibrant with good cut. Lots of orchard fruit and minerals, bright acidity, and just a lot going on. Hard to stop sniffing and sipping!
From the mid-slope of the Schlossberg. Definitely the most age-worthy of the Weinbach cuvees. An excellent wine that needs a little bit of time. A vintage that is a touch on the richer side, but still delicate and balanced.
Light yellow with green reflexes. Elegant and balanced in the nose, old-school Alsace Riesling with ripe yellow apple, white peach and a certain spiciness. Well structured in the mouth, much more structured than the basic GC Schlossberg, fine acidity, elegant and silky. Very good.
