Cool, crisp, oozing with slatey, steely minerality. Ripe lemons, limes, underripe mango, a touch of star fruit.
On the palate this is pure energy, zippy acidity, salty minerality, so pure & focused. Yet there’s a hint of creaminess on the palate, adding a velvety touch to the Rheingau austerity. Delicious stuff!
This is so good!!
And so drinkable this young, while the GG wait for their time. — 5 months ago
Shy white stone fruit on the nose, with just a hint of creaminess and a cool minerality underneath.
On the palate this is razor sharp, with juicy acidity, salty, steely minerality and ripe, succulent lemons. Bucketloads of them. For an entry level wine this has amazing precision & purity with good depth and a super long finish with notes if lemongrass.

With >200 yrs of family history in Rheingau, this producer naturally grows mostly Riesling, but this PN is stunning. Medium-deep ruby brick color; nose of red and blue small ripe fruits, pronounced spiciness, and new oak but in amounts best described by the Swedish word ”lagom” (just enough); low alcohol but with a respectable structure from acids and small tannins, mouthfilling and a long finish where violets, mint, strawberries, and herbs linger. — 8 months ago
Starts quite smokey and closed, after some time opens up with exotic fruit and a touch of caramel sweetness.
But once all this blows over the Riesling purity & brilliance shines through.
Ripe lime, white peach, a hint of honey - yet still very cool & puristic, Rocky & mineral.
On the palate starts off with shy white fruit but the steely, cool, fresh acidity kicks in expands endlessly. This has great depth, and amazing purity. length too!
There’s just a touch of fruit, a hint of oak, but this all just lets the mineral purity shine.
This is complex and quite serious, but also so drinkable. — 7 months ago
