Vintage 2011 - I think they are Magicians, the two Merkelbach brothers... This is summum of balance, absolutely exquisite. A bit sweeter than anticipated, but who cares? Thank God Its Friday and for this wine, of course 🌞👏

A little fatter and less acid than I thought, but no doubt delicious!

Lazer beam acidity. So bright, with pristine stone fruit and petrol. Much younger than 2002er would suggest. #riesling #mosel #rieslingforstrength

Good fresh Riesling, so much youth for 2002, was even better on day two
