Deidesheimer Leinhöhle Riesling 2018

Second take on this one, different vintage.
The lemon peel, yuzu, petrol, white flower nose is intoxicating. The palate is extremely long and acid driven. That makes for a very vivid mouthfeel, almost electric, but there is some matter and width around it. The rear expands somehow into a very long and broad finish with yuzu and lemony notes. This is really good again. Probably my favourite trocken riesling to this day.

Hugely mineral nose. So much slate. Some lovely pure apricots as well. Gorgeous clarity and freshness. Killer. A mineral blizzard. So refined. Herbs as well. Just so clean and so Mosel. Palate is so elegant and a hint of creaminess and lovely saline, and elegant finish. This is pure class in a glass. Outrageous complexity. What length. The finish is insanely mineral with lingering flavors of apricot and peach. Super juicy and so clear. Saline. Awesome acid and mineral backbone. Still has more to say. Wow. I’ll be back. Such crunchy minerality. Sappy and so pure. Amazing length.

overnight this went from 9.5 to 9.7. stunning minerality and concentration. so so dry. a genius wine.

More massive minerals on the epic nose. Pulverized slate dust. So complex. Apricot. Peach. So vivid. Some vulcanized rubber. Deeply penetrative nose. Herbal and salty. Rich, racy, creamy and very complex. Juicy and elegant. Serene. Yet suberb mineral structure and awesome purity. Almost tannic on the finish. Amazing breadth and depth. Finish is forever. What a wine! Citrus now on the nose. Tangerine juice. Pink grapefruit. Power, elegance and insane concentration. Wow. Superb depth. Endless depth. Special. — 14 days ago
