Nose has cut nectarine, lime pith, ripe white peach with a squeeze of lemon juice and wet slate.
Palate has Clementine zest, fresh green apple peel, cold pineapple, light salinity, lingering lime flesh notes with a long finish. Lovely bottle, as always.
Paired with Taiwanese Five Spice Pork (Lu Rou Fan | 卤肉饭) over Jasmin rice and lightly fried eggs from our private egg factory in the backyard. Decent pair, but really needed a slightly sweeter wine to help lift the dish more. — 5 months ago
Super mineral, super grassy, intense lime zest, some peach, but classic lean and mean Schätzel here. Spring water aromas. It smells so pure. Palate is just electric. Tangy and deep but also skeletal and lithe. Very pure and clean with peach and apricot fruit. Lean fruit. Concentrated and pure. Echoes on the palate. Superb structure and echoing finish. Really impressive. — a month ago
Racy Spatlese 101. Wow. What a brilliant nose. Gorgeous minerals, pineapple cream, apricot, peach nectar, so so decadent but clean as a whistle and never too much. Palate is hauntingly elegant with terrific concentration and citric power. Incredible depth, but also light and persistent. Terrific wine. The elegance has shockingly vivid fruits put this over the top. — 5 months ago
So pure so good. You want to something completely different from donhoff or Keller try this equally good, dryer, bolder just great — 5 months ago
Just a beautiful wine that is vibrating on its own plane. Stunningly floral nose. So delicate and layered and almost poignant. Amazing deep minerality that is so primal, almost of a different time. So special. Citrus, lime, crushed rocks, river stream. So many aromas. Such an array. One of the greatest noses on a young Riesling ever. Insanely juicy and complex with just electric acidity and minerality. Like a cloud with so many flavors and layers but oh so delicate. My god this is stunnIng. Epically long and well paced finish with insane levels of energy, lime sweet tart, huge minerals and insane structure. This needs 5 years and will age gracefully for 15-18. An accomplishment. — a year ago
