Palate has dried apricot, green apple flesh, grapefruit pith, dried lemon peel, over-ripe apricot with a faint green herbal note.
What a fantastic bottle, years to go, and this is still fresh under Stelvin closure. We have lots of Riesling, yet we drink it sparingly, bottles like this make my night, any night! 👍
48 Hour Update: Here's the thing with quality Riesling, more air is never a bad thing. Today all the traits are amplified, and a very fun pineapple-like acid/sweet note on the palate, amazing! Prior score of 9.2, goes to 9.3 today! — 3 days ago
Terrific nose. Spice, green apple, floral, slate and very fine aromas. Juicy and lean. Love 2014. Pure fruit. Pithy and just ripe. Love the tension. Terrific energy and freshness. Lovely acidity. Long finish with pithy fruit. Very elegant and complex. Terrific wine. — 5 days ago
Clear, effervescent. Lime, wet stone, hints of cherry. Decent acidity. — 17 days ago
Lemon in colour. First sip delivers mouth puckering citric acid to the back corners of the mouth. After recovering from that hit the mid palate delivers peachy flavours on a generously textured palate from this warmer vintage. Classic Grosses Gewachs quality from this dry Riesling. 12.5% Alc. A few days later notes of passion fruit. Intriguing. — a month ago
Been holding onto this for a bit but in the spirit of drinking good wine in challenging times: what a vintage. The balance is just so impeccable. Rs and acid, salt water taffy & some Meyer lemon - but overall an integrated, no hard edges elegant creature — 8 days ago
I don’t know which is more important right now.
Bright, pear slices, fresh grass. Reserved bouquet.
Wow. Silken mouthfeel. Nice kick of acid right when you want it. Beautiful rose petal like quality, the umami of sake. Subtle limestone, stonefruit.
Feels like mountains are breathing zephyrs and feeding my soul. Love it. Just found a new go-to for a slightly sweeter/tropical and bright Riesling.

Ok. This is whack. First off the color is orange. Only 2014 but tastes like a 15 year old wine. Permissive cork ?
Nose has aged Riesling and it smells like a very good sweet auslese. Dried peaches ?
Palate has age. Massive density. Massive. Concentrated orange peel. Rich. Some spice. Piquant.
I’ve never had a dry Riesling like this. It tastes like a sweet auslese without sugar
Day 2 this has a pleasant mushroom notes on the nose. Psychotic.

Honeyed apricot bursting out of the bottle on the nose and following through the palate. Fits perfectly with some spicy tomato sauce & lamb sausage over polenta. Rich for sure, but extremely well balanced with a firm acid backbone. Generous and inviting right now . — 2 days ago
