A rather spicy nose with stone fruit, herbs, apricot, bees wax, white flowers and lime.

Dense and multi layered palate with similar notes as on the palate but also a fresh acidity and mineral structure.

Fantastic Auslese that should be kept in storage for a long time.

Had high expectations on this wine after reading several recommendations, but I have to say I was disappointed. Maybe I am not able to recognise the future potential but for me this wine is not in balance. There are some nice features, especially the fruit on the nose, but the wine also has an abundance of dark minerals, iron and licorice that gets rather dominant. The acidity and tannins are harsh at the moment but will probably improve with time. Do not try this wine without food, and I would wait several years before opening another bottle.

This year has less Merlot then usually. Aged on 100% new American oak.
This is a opulent and powerful wine that still manages to stay intense. The nose and palate contains an abundance of cassis, cedar, vanilla, violet and blackberries. The acidity is rather soft and stays in the background, still the wine keeps a rather intense expression. Tannins are grippy and rather sandy at the moment. I think the wine is surprisingly approachable already but it should be stored.

The wines from Morstein usually has a lot of citrus and acidity. The soil has clayish marl and limestone on the upper layer and more limestone in the subsoil.
There are multiple layers of fruit on this dense and concentrated nose, but it never gets overly dominant. We also find some very slight flint and yeast notes and white flowers.

Juicy and mouthwatering acidity with a grippy expression showing both lime fruit and lemon. Again the fruit is dense and complemented by some herbal notes.

The wine already has a good balance between the acidity and the fruit and it manages to combine generosity with elegance. A truly fantastic wine.

Nose: Ripe red berries, perfumed, some cherries, floral, menthol, oranges and strawberries. Very seductive and already quite mature on the nose.
Taste: Generous with lots of red berries and a bit sweet. Good balance with the acidity.
Finish: Not very long, but pleasant and fruit driven.
Summary: This is a very seductive wine, especially on the nose. What is lacking is structure and complexity.
