The acid in this wine is bonkers. Just bonkers. Nose of lemon curd, slate, savory, minerals, confectionary, so so clean, some Vulcanized rubber which I love on my Mosel sweet wines. Rainwater. Glorious, epic palate of insane acids and dazzling green apple fruit, purity and freshness. So so so youthful. Still so utterly primary. Amazing texture and mouthfeel and so so savory on the finish. This is just incredible, energetic and genius Auslese. So so complex. 50+ years ahead of it. This tastes like freshly bottled 2019 Auslese. Devastating wine.

In a wonderful place. Slatey, savory nose. Some bruised green apple skin, so much dusty earth. Floral, herbal. Just stunning and evocative nose. Palate is so elegant. Hyper elegant. Juicy and mineral with much lower sweetness than I was expecting. So so juicy and tangy. Long. Like wow long. Salty, savory. Like a Perfect dessert at Michelin 3 star in liquid form. Ludes is absurd. — 14 days ago
