Racy and fragrant with ripe lime and a touch of orange blossom plus a steely edge to the juicy acidity. Slightly broader then the German Rieslings but still with great precision and balance. Drinking very nicely now. — a day ago
Single vineyard, with manual harvest, a bit of prolonged maceration and spontaneous fermentation. Then large, used wood.
Nice precision here with opulent, ripe stone fruit paired with juicy acidity and a herby-mineral edge in the finish.
Love the labels, too. Great discovery from Rheinhessen. — 6 days ago
Nice intensity, excellent seductive nose with dried cherry and herbs. On the palate a bit rustic, with quite a tannic grip and a fruit punch. Lacks a bit of elegance. — 6 days ago
Powerful and fruit driven, with damson plum dominant and sweet vanilla & caramel coming close behind. Fruit from top parcels with 2y aging in new and 2nd year barriques. Very in-your-face.

Clear as spring water, with seemingly little to offer. Yet the concentration, purity and precision is amazing + a finish that last ages. Waaay to young to drink now, wait & wait even longer.
This is brilliant stuff. — 6 days ago
Light and floral with a delicate framework filled with light strawberry & herbs yet with character and a sense of place. Ultra drinkable. — 6 days ago
Medium bodied and with nice fruit, yet not overly fruity. The Pinot elegance is there, seductive and with a touch of understatement. The wood is perfectly integrated by now and the strawberries & cream start giving way to the herby freshness. Hedonistic and delicious. — 6 days ago
Fresh & herby with apples, tart apricots a herby grass. On the palate with crispy acidity and pure fruit. Spontaneous fermentation and manual harvest. Very nice wine. — 6 days ago
Big & bold with smooth, velvety fine grained tannins and great berry acidity. Blueberry extreme with a touch of allspice and cloves and a whiff of orange peel. Nicely evolved (peaking probably right now) though a touch too sweet for my taste. Perfect match for a flank steak & green asparagus. — 12 days ago
