Super mineral, super grassy, intense lime zest, some peach, but classic lean and mean Schätzel here. Spring water aromas. It smells so pure. Palate is just electric. Tangy and deep but also skeletal and lithe. Very pure and clean with peach and apricot fruit. Lean fruit. Concentrated and pure. Echoes on the palate. Superb structure and echoing finish. Really impressive. — a month ago
Nose has cut nectarine, lime pith, ripe white peach with a squeeze of lemon juice and wet slate.
Palate has Clementine zest, fresh green apple peel, cold pineapple, light salinity, lingering lime flesh notes with a long finish. Lovely bottle, as always.
Paired with Taiwanese Five Spice Pork (Lu Rou Fan | 卤肉饭) over Jasmin rice and lightly fried eggs from our private egg factory in the backyard. Decent pair, but really needed a slightly sweeter wine to help lift the dish more. — 5 months ago
Pink grapefruit and ripe peach are tinged with fresh ginger and smoky black tea on the nose and the silken-textured, lees-inflected yet generously juicy palate. The luscious finish harbors more than enough bite and smoky pungency to invigorate. While there seems to be nothing remotely approaching consensus on why crumbly iron-rich red slate of the sort involved here (in both the Nonnenberg and parts of the Marienburg) tends to imprint Riesling with distinctively luscious citricity, deep peachiness and smoky accents, the effect is undeniable and unmistakable.

Don't often have Riesling dry, but this is quintessential petrol and quince. Stands up well to acidic tomato sauces. — 2 months ago
Fresh. Great for spring and summer — 5 months ago
