This is like if Coche-Dury made Riesling! The richness combined with the freshness in this wine is just not fair. It is so, so good. I'm not going to introduce a new Riesling estate if it's not the goods and the top of the tops. This is still the newest one in the last two years and I've tasted a lot. The Koberner has more blue slate and this wine is like a lower Mosel interpretation of a Middle Mosel wine. A lot of the classic Mosel thing you get is from blue slate. So this is by far the most mineral of all the wines that Materne and Schmitt make so naturally I had to offer it as it's shockingly great and in 2017 it's the best value Riesling I've had in ages. Stunning nose. Drop dead. Rich yellow fruits. Lovely racey herbal aromas with profound purity and depth. After some air gorgeous white flowers. Huge minerality that is super penetrating. It's so refined and straight as an arrow. Really just wonderful aromas. The palate is incredibly juicy and rich with jaw dropping purity. Terrific ripeness and a brilliant texture. Oh man is this silly good. Like a cross between Battenfeld Moelsheim and Coche Dury! Wow what an insane texture worth endless depth. Stunning. Beautiful freshness and acidity allied with richness it is just to die for. Incredible palate staining length. Wow oh wow oh wow. This wine is why I opened this company. Exquisite balance and so, so pure. After 45 minutes the minerality takes over. So sappy with incredible dry extract. It has it all. What a wine.
