Blinded and my WOTN. You know when a wine's open for business, it's simply unbeatable. That being said, even the KR crew was surprised how well this showed. I mean it technically sits near the bottom of their wine range, but we absolutely annihilated the bottle. This line from a CT user pretty much sums up the wine - "Quite intense, but gives the refreshing feeling of mountain spring water". In fact, I thought it was a Spatlese trocken.

Nose of sea spray, grapefruit, pear, anise, fresh green herbs, chamomile and that typical KR dirt. The palate's just so saline, juicy, and spicy. Like biting into the juiciest white nectarine by the ocean. Finishes tart, mineral, and long. Pure finesse!

Enjoying the fruits of our sister winery.

Dry, but with lots of botrytis. Kind of weird because I expected it to have a bit of RS after just smelling it. Citrus/lime/zest, spice/ginger/saffron, honey, stone fruit/peach/something, saline/chalky/mineral. Thick/glycerol texture, but not really weighty or dense. Actually kind of fresh even with the botrytis because it's got screaming acid.

I finally get why all my favorite winos are obsessed with this grape.

Outstanding for the price, classic to find it at Lotus for the price of a glass of wine on the strip.
