Now fully assured that the first time I was wow'd by this wine wasn't a fluke. The Kuhling Gillot Pettenthal is some serious juice. An incredibly ripe yet intense nose of mineral, fruit and funk is then contrasted by a bonedry and textural performance on the palate. Don't even get me started on the length of the finish.

Terrific aromas. Tropical and petrol. Very deep and mineral. Palate is rich and complex with a nice spine. Aging your dry Riesling ask lets the wine spread out texturally. Gorgeous.

Super yellow fruits. More ripe than Hipping, mineral bit buried by precise fruit. Acidity. Huge nose. Juicy. Insanely mineral after some air.

Big Riesling, definitely not as brutally fresh as I normally prefer but very well structured with nice tropical and honey notes. Dark complexion.
