    June 30, 2022 - Discover GG Rieslings, Germany’s Very Own Grand Crus (Hong Kong): From Nahe, Germany, a region that is warmer than Mosel and whose rock / soil type runs the entire range.
    This particularly wine comes from red volcanic soil leading to lots of minerality. Vines 25-30 yrs old. Fermented in classic oak barrels.
    Pale lemon in glass, warmer climate likely leading to the slightly more gold intensity than previous Mosel wine.
    Nose more intense with flinty, petrol aroma attributed to volcanic igneous rock. Touch of toast from oak barrels (note: not vanilla, which would be from newer oak).
    Palate: High acidity. Ripe Thai lemon, apricot, ripe peaches. More stone fruit because warmer climate.
    Medium finish.

    May 13, 2022 - UWS; A mixed set of wines (@ JB): Beautiful and complex bouquet with minerals and white fruit. On the palate the same impressions, beautiful acidity, bone dry, great length. A beautiful and classical wine. 92+ Give it another decade in the cellar.

    May 8, 2022 - Already some petrol on the nose...more like engine oil. Aromas of smoke, granite, lemon, lemon zest. Classic grainy minerality on the palate. White flowers. I’m not convinced this bottle was in perfect condition but still excellent.

    September 14, 2021 - So good I just love this. Fresh nervous energetic and extremely dynamic zippy pulse from first pour lovely limey fruit with crunch. Settled down and fattened a little after and hour or so, but what a great journey of energetic balanced acid and perfect clean fruit in a lovely dry style.

    June 5, 2021 - Straw in colour with beautiful aromatics displaying charming scents of white blossom, honeysuckle and lime as well as stony minerality. Long and persistent across the palate with crystal clear fruit and bright acidity that balances its greasy texture in an effortless way.
