Day 2 notes. Was killer yesterday and needed maybe 35 minutes to get going. Today, subdued nose of red fruits, cherries, spice and mineral. Very Pinot. Superb earthiness and tree bark. Sublime. Palate is elegant and mineral with lovely snappiness and purity. Very elegant. So complete and lithe. — 11 days ago

From Mag. Part of C&A's spectacular wedding lineup, and perfectly paired with suckling pig. The laser acidity and extreme salinity really cut through all that richness, but also interestingly completed the hot mustard sauce. The nose on this wine was beautiful - berries, white florals, sea salt, sage. Palate was just pure saltiness. The body, which seemed weightier than previous encounters, exceeded expectations - could have been the vintage or food. All in all, a great way to start a legendary feast! — 4 days ago
Slightly citric, minerality and salinity, clean fruit finish. — 5 days ago
The condition of the bottle was remarkable - the wine was fresh and crisp, like the day it was bottled. Bright with a tinge of green, no signs of TDN at all. Only the mellowed acidity gave any indication of age. Insane!
Despite all that, the wine itself was rather disappointing. Not really complex or deep, and finish was quite short. I guess it did come from a tough vintage. However, it had the classic Grunhaus lightness - drinking more like a kabi than spat. In conclusion, an easy fun drink that fell below expectations. — 5 days ago
