This is a crazy Riesling blend. Not sure all of them but it’s 5 grapes. It smells immediately like a wine that will fail on the palate if it does not have some major acids and minerals. It’s an exuberant and very fruity nose. The Gewurz is there and dominates like the loud person at a table of 5. Some mineral undertones and veggie florals if that makes sense. Palate is what I thought it would be. Loads of minerals and good acid to make it fresh. A very mineral wine that needs to be because of the exuberant nose. Nose gets more floral and interesting as it airs out. More nuanced. Some smoke and incense notes. Very interesting. Kind of like Italian Gemicher-Satz. A wine to reach for with a lot of food. Some piquant citrus and candied orange develop with air. Also the florals increase. It gains energy and sap. Really a fascinating first 10 minutes to this wine. Chameleon. Wonder where it settles.
