Very opulent nose. Grapefruit, pineapple and lovely stoniness. Herbal, citrus. Lanolin. Just a wonderful nose. After air this gets gloriously mineral. Elegant, ripe and juicy. Nice tang and tartness on the finish and great persistence. Nice energy and great complexity. Like licking citrus on that has been thrown on a rock by Roger Clemens in his prime. Delicious. — 12 days ago

Pfalz really nailed it in 2020. Even the entry level wines have a wonderful electric tension - light & filigrane yet with character, with great balance and drinkability.
Crunchy white peach with some pear, white flowers and salty tang.
Delicious sipping. — a month ago
Sick nose. So complex. Hint of sweet wood, such a complex perfume and florals. Lovely pit fruits that are just vivid and detailed. So deep, endless nuance. This is a knockout. Palate is like elite 1er cru white burgundy. Awesome sweet wood that is so well integrated that only an MW could pull this off. The complexity is off the charts. Brown sugar, pitted fruits and an almost Cochr like luxuriousness. This is brilliant! Brilliant freshness and this is straight as an arrow and laser like in its precision and finesse. Perfect balance. Blown away. The depth of this perfume is amazing. Almost a Tolkien like amalgam of earthen scents. So special. Palate is so round yet so pure. Salty now on the finish. Exceptional wine. Ziereisen Jaspis level. — 21 days ago
Super interesting, little funky, orange and slightly fizzy. Let us air out but the bad breath smell adds to it in a good way — 3 days ago

If there’s one type of wine I might know more about than any other it’s Weiner Gemischter Satz. Just one of those strange quirks of vinous fate combined with the mildly obsessive tendencies of a serious wine geek. Search out my article on it in World of Fine Wine if you want all 8000 words. For now let’s just enjoy the fruits of wunderkind Jutta Ambrositch, who got tired of sitting behind a computer all day and wandered into the vineyards of Vienna, where she still wanders to this day, making the traditional field blends that are both responsible for and symbolic of Vienna’s urban wine scene. Her early efforts were excellent, and her latest wines, like this one, demonstrate a level of refinement and mastery that is quite impressive. This wine comes from 5 different vineyards in Vienna on both sides of the Danube planted with a dizzying array of grape varieties, some of which haven’t been fully identified yet. Call it roughly 30 different grape varieties, including Riesling, Grüner Veltliner, Sauvignon Blanc, Zierfandler, Frühroter, Chardonnay, etc. etc. tastes of stone fruit and citrus, crushed stones and herbs. Snappy, with fantastic acidity and quite elegant and lean for Gemischter Satz, which can, if picked later, be more weighty. This is simply a delight to drink.

This was phenomenal. It’s a show stopping wine with high minerality and notes of apricot and citrus. Orange wine is sometimes a but much with food, but this was complimentary. It’s also perfect on its own. A really fun one to try! I’ll get it again. — a month ago
