Mesmerizing nose of blackcurrant, creme de cassis, violet, cedar, fresh orange peel, cured meat, and forest floor. Gentle and soft on the entry, with parade of flavors echoing the nose. The full body feels deceivingly weightless on the palate, but with great energy and precision. Velvety tannins. The finish lasts for minutes.
Seamless and elegant. Outstanding already at its young age. — a month ago
Light color compared to other Rieslings from the Saar. Super intense smell of crushed wet rocks. Taste is elegant and balanced. Medium length with a slightly (too) sweet finish for a dry Riesling. — 4 hours ago
Still a dark Ruby almost opaque. Ripe dark plum notes verging on prune. Blackberry and Dark Chocolate. Touches of licorice and mint. Typical old vine Barossa - a lush texture from old vines and full bodied. Great length and resolved tannins. So delicious now I can’t see that further cellaring will change things markedly for the better. — 22 days ago
I happen to think that Kadarka, a Hungarian grape that few have heard of, is one of the most interesting wine grapes around. Similar to Trousseau or Poulssard in weight and finesse, it’s totally delicious. This one is made from gnarled, 100-year-old vines (hence the name) whose delicate fruit is fermented and aged in steel. Aromas of dried flowers and red currant give way to dried herbs, strawberry and cherry flavors with notes of dried fennel seed in the finish. Juicy and bright and a mere 13% alcohol. — 7 days ago
A friend said he would bring a Peter Michael red,so I thought it would be fun to bring a white.
The opening nose is predominantly citrus and jasmine, not the ripe stone fruits I was expecting. Golden apple, pear, roasted nuts, and hint of brioche followed as it opened up in the glass. Viscous but not heavy on the palate with well judged acidity. Beautiful balance between richness and delicacy. Long mineral driven finish.
