Shy, muted nose, flirting between the naturalistic and the classical.
Bruised apple, baked lemon, hay, meadow flowers.
The magic happens on the palate. Slightly richer mouthfeel balanced by racy, zippy, bright acidity. There’s a hint of tannins, brilliant energy & tension, and a core of minerality underneath the the shy apples, apricots & lemons.
This doesn’t taste like a Riesling at first, yet deep inside it has some cues.
At 11.5% this is brilliantly drinkable!

Tart cherry, tree bark, and hibiscus tea on the nose, leading to a wonderfully sweet and refreshing palate of strawberry, forest floor, and fresh herbs. The finish is lingering and pleasant, mild tannins offsetting the sweet, aromatic Pinot. Spätburgunder for the win, always. — 8 months ago
