Community Tasting Notes (26) Avg Score: 92.9 points

  • Nose: There is a lushness to the nose with green apples, mangoes, apricots, peaches with some petrol as well.

    Taste: Full bodied with noticeable medium/high acidity. The acidity still has a good amount of punch to it along with green apples, apricots, peaches, and some petrol notes.

    Overall: While this is certainly drinking right now, there are many years ahead. There is a lushness to this, but it's far from being over ripe.

  • EWG @ Ración: Tough to have this next to the 01. Dramatic contrast. I found this really lovely and far more subtle. Next to the 01 it just showed far less power and acidity. I liked it all the same.

  • Racion: Lighter pale yellow; closed at first, but exploded with the pairing with the Cabrales cheese. Unlike the 2001 (10%) this had 7.5% alc. and was a perfect foil for the extremely tangy and salty cheese, showing clean green apple, tons of great acidity, a bit of petrol and great concentration. Full sweetness, viscous and fleshy, even a very tiny nuance of spritz, this was a joy, although not as complex as the 2001.

  • AP 1203. In contrast to the '01, this is much mellower, easy and open. Nothing compelling here, but it is a really nice wine to drink now. Good flavors, but the acidity is not as captivating and focused as I'd like.

  • Awesome. This is my kind of Auslese - layered with rich, powerful fruit fruit, but conveyed with a sense of brightness and clarity with no noticeable botrytis. There's a firm mineral base beneath and plenty of acidity that keeps it very precise and refreshing, and it's a wine I really should look out for. Very young now, but tremendous.

    (Gunderloch Nackenheimer Rothenberg Auslese) This is always a heavy hitter. This year is no exception. The botrytis is more integrated than when I tasted it back in June but it still backs a huge botrytis punch. Tastes like a liquid frozen creamsicle. It's ripe, fat, long and shows an array of citrus flavors but lacks something in the complexity departement. But it still makes up for that with its sheer power and explosiveness. Long too.

    (Gunnderloch Nackenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Auslese) Botrytis is very evident here. Krazy nose of peaches, orange marmalade, kiwis, sweet peas and undergrowth. Thick and dense in the mouth with flavors of apricot and cream. Acids delineate all the material perfectly. Extremely powerful Riesling.
