Lovely dry style. Very citrus and aromatic. Excellent for the price.

Certified Ripper . . . 2.8 pH with a seriously bad attitude. Intense mountain minerality that cuts like a razor, piercing on the entry and unrelenting on the mid palate and finish. Fruit way in the back, but well worth the wait.

One of my all time favourites which remains one of the world's best value for money Rieslings. The vineyard's altitude lends a balance of beautiful purity of lemon & line fruit with both freshness and minerality. Fabulous, and with good potential longevity.

Seriously crafted in an intruiging way, as the lofty acidity levels will scare most people off! But I love it:) Very dry on the palate, with compressed fruit flavors, all tilting towards the unripe green/citrus side of the flavors spectrum. In a way monolithic, but this is personal stuff, aimed at the connoisseur. I wouldn't be surprised if this will surprise us all in 10+ years time. 90+?

Mouth tingling acidity, an explosion of lime and petrol with hints of white flowers and lemon curd.

Needs a little bit more time in the bottle, and if you open it this year give it some air. This is such a killer deal, and it goes with such a wide range of food.

Lovely Riesling. Some green notes that can be confused with SB, but citrus and stone fruit gives away the grape. Tasted blind and no one guessed. Some thought it was German or Austrian.

Well-balanced. Lemon-green, petrol aroma firstly comes, later lemon and white flower aroma come cheerfully. Not so much concentration. Mid acidity, dry. Fresh and floral, easy to drink one. alc11.7%
