Quite closed & shy on the nose upon opening, with a short decant shows ripe pear on sourdough toast, with a healthy pinch of salt. But also expands with time, showing nutmeg, dried mandarine peel, wet pebbles, limestone minerality.
Fresh & incredibly enticing. Quite subtle nonetheless.
On the palate this is a stunner. Intense, structured, with juicy acidity and a almost tannic frame. Ripe pears & apples and loads of minerality, saltiness, savoury edges. Rich yet with great flow, elegant yet with interesting edges. Only the alc (13.5%) could be integrated better, as it slightly sticks out towards the finish.
A brilliant PB and amazing value, too.

Killer nose. Loads of lemon/lime. Floral, super clean nose. Very nice. Less wild. Veg clean and pure. Juicy and pure. Apricot and juicy pears. Very elegant and not very “natural” which is a good thing! Lovely inner mouth aroma. 3-4 day skin contact. — 3 months ago
Great style. A mix of Alto Adige and Pfalz. Lot of concentrated fleshy white and yellow fruit, aromatics are not excessive and acidity is vibrant without taking front stage — 2 months ago
