Oh my god. This is singing.
Nose has a bit of age. Mineral. Tropical flowers.
As it opens fucking insane. Indescribably amazing. Perfection. Just hits that edge of elegance.
Palate is crunchy delicious minerals. A kiss of minerals made from Honey. so precise and fresh. Delicious. So balanced.
People who hate on Riesling should be forced to drink this. Like Chablis’ brother from another mother.

Wow this is fabulous. Nose is spicy, peppery red fruit and pink flowers. Good deep red fruit on the palate, fresh fruit and also fruit leather, herbs and light newly cured leather. Young. Giving, but only starting to open. Night one was good. Night three was way better and this should be phenomenal in 5 years as it begins to unfurl. — a day ago
Complex nose of spice, petrol, vulcanized rubber. Cotton candy. Peach. Apple skins. Very complex and giving. Very elegant, sappy and super pure. What texture and gracefulness. Terrific woodsy earthy spice on the nose after it aerates. Superb aromas. Smells like a scene in nature. Awesome acids and lift. Terrific intensity. Really great texture and some pithy citrus on the finish. — 8 days ago
A rich nose. So intense. Ripe but clean and loads of yellow fruits. Lovely minerality under all that richness. So pure. Gorgeous restraint for the richness. Like a small bite in a Michelin ***. Wow that palate though has that crazy 19 acids in all of Sven’s 19’s. So nice. Sappy, dense and lithe all at the same time. Amazing purity. Such lift. Best vintage for this ever. Just a sick wine. Electric. Nose gets more green tea now with air. Just outrageous complexity. Ridiculous depth. Now the nose is coming into better balance. Layered, floral and complex. This is a stunning wine. Wet stones on the nose. What electricity on the palate. Young and so promising but man what a thrill now. This has structure to burn. Better in 5 years. — 4 days ago
Thanks. Deep and very perfumed nose. Vanilla extract, herbs, spice and some apricot. Lifted and energetic nose. Really deep and wafting. Even floral. Palate is ripe, deep and juicy with appealing bitters in the finish. Acid is caressing and woven. Lovely hint of bell pepper on the nose. So good. Elegant, deep and super pure. This is a brilliant Riesling. Incredible texture and sap. What a finish. Almost a 9.4.

Very confectionary nose. So so good. Just so aromatic. Cotton candy, minerals, herbs and spice. Palate is classy and elegant with tremendous purity and juiciness. Round yet energetic and superb minerality and freshness throughout. Dazzlingly pure. Terrific depth. Finishes very mineral. — 8 days ago
Final btl. Fully mature for my palate. Lovely perfumed nose: sandalwood, wild cherry, dry earth and a hint of cherry liqueur. On the palate: excellent acidity, leather, dried cherry, a touch of cherry liqueur drenched dried cherry...entirely attenuated tannin on the finish. — 17 days ago
A step up over the 17. The nose let’s you know you are in rarified air. Superb complexity and such depth. Floral, vanilla extract and superb freshness. Herbal as well. Some citrus peeking through. Tangelo skin and pithy. Huge huge minerals. Confectionary. Ripe. Enormous complexity. Palate is incredible. Deep, juicy and with impressive breadth. Obviously showing younger than the 17 but also has more concentration and purity. Awesome freshness and grip. Terrific fruit, citrus rides on a wave of minerality on the finish. Superb length and clarity. Lovely hint of spice on the finish. Stunning. Even with some air the nose goes krazy and gets so pungent. Insane citrus and depth. So floral. Stunning! Wow that palate is the ultimate rich/fresh combo. — 7 days ago
This is an unreal wine. One of the best skin contact wines out there. What a color. Pink as a rose. But with a golden sheen. Color is never to be remarked on unless it is truly exceptional. That is the case with this wine. Nose is clean. Like Bounty clean. Amazing pink grapefruit. A lovely bitter element. So delicate and deep. Masterful. Palate is tangy and has so much sweet pink grapefruit and stunningly bracing minerality. Unreal clarity and purity. Endless finish. One of those 9.4’s that you question all night after why you didn’t give it a 9.5. — 18 days ago
