2016 is quite intense. Raging fruit, lovely florals. Hint of botrytis, but not at all overbearing. Meyer lemon,
apricot, lychee and a faint sweetness. Thyme, pine needles and ginger coming through on the nose. Lots of gorgeous Alsatian character and enormous, full-throttle palate presence. It should be mentioned that these wines are not compromising, crafted in the traditional manner and require fairly weighty food to compliment their inherent richness and intensity.

Mid Gold - a very developed colour. Aromas of Apricot and sugared glacé fruits. On the palate Apricot and cumquat flavours. Palate is saved by a nice finish of acid, but just hanging on. Started developing quickly in the glass. An interesting drink but thankfully my last bottle.

Lemon and lime zest, heavy petrol, ginger, chamomile and jasmine. Oily and rich texture, great acidity.

Mint leaves and rose petals with a mineral edge. Acid is decent.

Intact, despite the disconcerting color at this stage.

Normally a bit too rich for me, discovered it's perfect match--choucroute garnie--pork chops, bacon, apples, sour kraut, ideal foil for this viscous lemon oil, almost lemon pledge wine. Regional food for wine pairing is a no-brainer, shouldn't have taken this long to figure out.

Cool stuff, with abundant secondary aromas and flavors. Short of off-dry, rounded-off acidity and richly textured on the lengthy finish.
