A favorite Gutedel year in and year out. Nose is so mineral. Zero fruit. Gutedel rarely has fruit. Hint if green apple skin but it’s all stones now. Pulverized stones. Some spice and herbs. Like an open market bazaar in India. So cool. Palate is a dry beast! But a refined beast. It has a richness and creaminess to it but it has serious mineral structure, sap and a prodigious finish. Long finish with loads of sap and extract. Amazingly pure, energetic and precise. Really impressive sap and extract. Structured as well for short term aging. Maybe 5-7 years. As usual, so impressive.
After air this has gotten so elegant. 9.3 to 9.4. Complex, structured and dense. So serious yet lithe. Unreal — a month ago
