Light golden color with a tinge of green. Beautifully perfumed with aromas of apricots and honey with a dash of pears. Chamomile and lilacs with green apples and slate. Riesling has never truly been my jam in my past but this is a really nice example of what the grape can be. Sharp acidity and nice purity of fruit.
Off dry with just the right amount of sweetness here, this has terrific balance throughout. Smooth and elegant, with a nice level of refinement. The palate features Meyer lemons, melons, and crisp citrus fruits. Slate, minerality, and a bit of spice. Light and decidedly fresh, these Hofgut Falkenstein wines are indeed the real deal. — 9 days ago
I could just sit and smell this: grapefruit, fennel, fennel pollen, soft yeast, herbs, cucumber, wet stone, loads of minerality....subtle and fantastically complex. On the palate: fantastic acidity, sweet grapefruit, lime, crushed flowers, roasted fennel, fantastic minerality and excellent density and a lovely finish. Stunning. — 7 days ago
Pop and pour. Notes from 1 hr open. On the nose: peach, soft cotton candy, loads of wet stone and lime...still surprisingly primary. On the palate: good acidity, loads of wet stone, lime, soft honeyed notes, fantastic density. Not quite as vibrant as other Molitor wines I've had from this vineyard, but superb balance, and damn good. — 11 days ago
