Beautiful nose. Wow. Honeyed and so ripe but with incredible purity and detail. Tangerine and a hint of sponti. Beautiful minerals. A sense of depth. Wow. What a palate. Freak show. That acidity is LIT! 🔥🔥. Wow, such depth and elegance with super precision but also that loose vibe this wine always has. Lovely, long finish. Stunning. Holy sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit.

Ripe fruit, peaches, apricot, piquant, tangelo, kumquat, closed as a fist. But length and balance, super fruit, super complex. Terrific. But closed and can tell it’s from a Warmer. — a day ago

Great nose. Confectionary Rheinhessen, White cherries, beautiful clear minerality. Complex with an amazing mouthfeel. Crunchy and long. Roundness but it doesn’t take away from the acid and structure. It’s harmonious. — a day ago

Day 2 notes. Citrus, potpourri, flowers, so serene and aromatic. Peach and apricot as well. Palate is stunningly elegant and fresh with superb harmony and cut. Long citrusy finish. Complex, chewy and dense all while remaining elegant. Long finish. Terrific. — 14 days ago

Stunning. Nose is a bit quiet, quiet citrus, lime zest, mineral, swimming pool, palate is insane. Super limey on the palate but super mineral intense but also so juicy and the dissipation on the finish is incredible. Wow. Stunning. — a day ago

The most mineral of all the Thörle Rieslings. Mineral, peach and almost too dense mineral. Amazing mouthfeel, gentle but nuanced and complex. Stunning finish. So cherry, salty, mineral and juicy. Serene. Very zen. — a day ago

S Rheinhessen Riesling 2012

In case anyone is wondering, "S" means Selection... And where might this selection be from? Aulerde. So another declassified GG from the maestro, KP! How does it taste? Pure liquid gold. Drinking so well now. Acid integrated right in, just the right amount of tdn to fruit ratio, playful on the tongue, and that texture. I would say this could do with even more lay time. It's quite primary really... The fruits are quite ripe and sweet (candied). I really love the dried flower element here and the minerality... Bwah! So good. Honestly, the true success here is how fast we reached the bottom of the bottle without even realising it. Another class act from KP! — 17 days ago
