    (Kunstler Kirchenstuck Erstes Gewachs) A wonderfull salty, minerally nose with loads of stone fruits (peach, tangerine). Hauntingly elegant with nice concentration and a lithe feeling in the mouth. Quite rich in the middle and the backend. Great finish. A wow wine and such a bargain in the world of Erstes Gewachs.

    (Kunstler Hocheimer Kirchenstuck Erstes Gewachs) I have definetly come to the conclusion that 2005 is an absolutely spectacular vintage for the GG and EG category with almost every one of them blowing me away. Tonight was no different. Explosive aromas of apricot, verbena, chamomile, white flowers, incense, sweet paprika, tangerine and some slate. Amazingy complex nose that grew throughout the night. Palate was soft as a pillow with beautiful purity and delineation. The acid is great but not imposing. It is perfectly integrated. The harmony was jaw-dropping. The fruit had a dried quality yet still had amazing freshness which is I guess what these styles of wine are trying to attain. Painfully elegant and long. This is an amazing wine and quite a value.
