2010. Oxidative note from the barrel on the nose holds down the low end while the high tones steal the show , but it's razor sharp on the palate with a little plumpness from a touch of RS.

Smoke show Riesling! Racing acidity, petrol and honeysuckle and all that one the nose but bone dry with a lot of minerality. Super refined and clean as fuck. Very pretty not showy Riesling. Outstanding with food. High abv. - 13.5! Watch out, bc this stuff is poundable and doesn't drink like it has any punch but she'll get ya.

Amazing. So complex and fun. I think food would only hide whats inside this wine. Crazy good.

What you would call Eminently Poundable. So, so freaking good.
