Floral and honey. Nice balance lingering tangy finish. Maybe just a touch of RS to balance the acidity. Nicely done. — 3 years ago

You have to give credit where credit is due. Since Bernd left, KR has admittedly been in the shadow of it's past. But this 16' is proof that KR's back. Stronger than ever! Dominik and Franzi has nailed it. This is one of those "fuck me" wines. It shows Saumagen's hedonistic nature, although leashed by searing acidity and confounding weightlessness.
The minerality is overwhelming. You can smell it and taste nothing but it. Flowers, exotic fruits, and cream on the nose too. Lengthy delicate finish. If I had anything to complain, it would be that the weight almost entirely derives from phenolic grip atm. It needs time, lots of it to sing at its full potential.
NB: Had this twice this year. Next up - Auslese trocken R! — 4 years ago
