Purchased at auction; I have some 2015's in my collection and so was very keen to look at how it ages. Cork in excellent condition, no ullage of which to speak.

Colour is burnished bronze but not flat or brown.

Nose is a heady brew of apricot, apple, toffee and perhaps the slightest hint of rancio. In the mouth these follow through and there is fantastic intensity, great length and a sublime mouthfeel - at first unctuous and almost overwhelming then finishing crisp and clean.

I find German Riesling remains great value on a world scale. Gunderloch are a producer of very correct styles, of high quality and representing great value. I feel great confidence in buying their wine and this just confirms it. If this was a wine of similar quality from Chablis, or Burgundy it would be at least twice the price.

    Also, how is it that we have no "wine in common"?

Remarkable how alive this bottle remains, and how well it has held up. Drinking beautifully!

Nose of butterscotch and a sweeter gingerbread. Clove and almond as well. Toasted chestnuts mixed with Christmas cookie and butterscotch frosting. Baking spices as well. Delicious effort!! 93-94 points.

Quite advanced - mature nose of leather and stewed fruits. Interestingly, on day 2, this seemed much frersher, some cherry coming through, seems to be getting younger. Initially I thought this may have been too advanced, but now I am not so sure.
