Terrific. In a great almost ideal place now. Nose is apricot, honey, candied lemon, spices, citrus, salt, so so aromatic. Big fruit skin energy as well. Also earthy, confectionary and gamey. Just so so complex. Palate is just pure harmony. Not a hair out of place and long saline finish with apricot skin that lingers. Stunning purity. So pretty. Really lingers. A knockout. — 2 months ago
This is an schwarzen hergott auslese. Which is a sweet wine. The dry wine is a grosses gewachs.
Nose is so clean. Hint of botrytus. But it’s just an element.
Palate is so fresh. Green apple and a hint of tropicality. Mineral. Juicy. So good.

Nose is fresh rainwater with a hint of lemon flower.
Palate is fresh mountain stream. Some lemon zest. Mineral dust.
As this opens better minerality. Very elegant. Incredibly precise.
This is either a great 9.2 or a 9.6. — 8 days ago
Nose is lemon flower and mineral. So pretty
Palate is candied lemon. Petrified and crushed lemon. So “sweet”. This is insanely delicious.
As this opens sleek and elegant. Less fresh crushed rock and more powdery. Lovely internal aromatics.

Lovely forest rasberries and strawberries, sandalwood and a hint of smoke — 7 months ago
Been over a year since I’ve had this and really dug it last time. Glorious cooling spices. Lovely mineral and earthen scents. Oolong tea. Tree bark. Perfectly ripe cherries. Just gorgeous. So complex and layered. So delicate and pure. 9.5 nose. Palate is dynamite. Full of energy, power, concentration and depth. Very Red Riesling. So sappy. Ripe, sweet and velvety tannins. Superb structure and sap. Just brilliant. — 17 days ago
Nose is nicely mineral. Very elegant.
Palate minerality is almost Stinging. Spicy. Wow. A great vintage of this wine. Perfect mineral fruit balance. Dense. Clings to the palate. Perfect lemon. Like a sweet lemon in that it has that balance but it’s not sweet.

Nose is super smoky on open. Some green apples peeking out. As it opens quite complex. Perfumed. More of a rock perfume if that makes any sense. Some florals. Wow.
Palate has stunning fruit. Wow. Nicely mineral. Hint of tartness. Nicely mineral. Optimal rheinhessen deliciousness. More on the Apple side but not apply. Quince ?
Finish steely minerals. Just insanely intense. Really squeegees you. Just drags intense juicy tart fruit goodness over your palate as it goes down.
This is really really good.
