Mirabelle plum, pink grapefruit, apricot, other citrus, maybe blood orange, minerality is exquisite, sweet detailed but so dry on the nose. Inner mouth aromas, crystalline structure, very pure, long, sexy ample texture. Long. Grippy. Needs 3-4 years. Then will last 10-15 years.

With air this comes alive more. Candied apricots, confectionery aromas and superb spice. Palate is tangy and fresh with loads of acidity. Gorgeous clarity and tremendous finesse and precision.

An elegant and deep nose with loads of deep stony minerality with a hint of petrol. There is also beautiful, juicy, peachy fruit underneath. And a pollen-like note. Whacks the mouth with intensity but then settles into a long finish with clinging aromatic notes of fruit and stone. Nice acidity, but it’s submerged in the flavors and subtle. Very rich for a dry Riesling.

Beguiling nose of slate, white peach, just ripe apricot, vulcanized rubber, herbs, and more. Super complex and refined. Palate is explosive and also refined, with amazing palate presence, density and mineral crunch. Really classy stuff for the amount of material here. Stunningly long citrus/stone fruit finish that is tightly coiled but incredible promising. The length of this is quite notable. Beautiful wine.

Nose is minerals made from lemon rocks. Lemon flowers. Lovely.

Palate is incredibly mineral. Gods lemon soda. Just so fresh. So well made. An echo of pith to balance it out. Very slightly delicious. Enough to make it interesting but not so much to make it Jejune. So true to place.

This is not a show stopper. But it is a beautiful example of what it is. And with proper food a part of a perfect evening.

Nose is pink grapefruit. Sweet minerals.

Palate is pink grapefruit. Gods lemon soda. Almost sweet. Delicious.

This is drinking more delicious than profound at this point. Nothing wrong with that.

As this opens just this candied river rock made from petrified grapefruit / mosel slate. Sheeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiit. So good. I fucking love Riesling.

Nose is freshly crushed pebbles. Fresh lemon peel. Some pink grapefruit. Gorgeously elegant Citrus perfume.

Palate is stunning mineral lemon candy. Knife edge precision. Lovely minerality. So precise and balanced. Like great champagne. Good density. Not elite. But expertly made. This could not be better made. Minerals are so present the are almost spicy.

Long precise finish. Mineral. Lemon. Against that fresh mineral “spice.” Lingering. So good.

Whoa. This is a surprise.

Nose is mineral made from petrified flowers. As it opens sweet state.

Palate has a blast of pebbly minerality. Almost like drinking flowers. Hint if white peach. Indescribably delicious. As it opens almost a sweet juiciness. Minerality is perfectly interlaced with the fruit.

Expansive internal aromatics. Some green apple.
