Very acid-driven, would have appreciated more generosity with fruit

Nice viscosity for a Grüner. Pear, white pepper, apple, underripe melon, medium acid, medium alcohol. Nice and refreshing.

Lemon, citrus, pepper. Notable evolution from aroma to finish, which is quite crisp and dry, with some serious mineral notes.

Rarely do you find a gruner with this kind of balance. Vibrant and expressive from the start - Fresh cut lemon, pickle brine, smashed white pepper and minerality that doesn't quit. The acid is persistent and unrelenting, making for a beautiful finish that refuses to let go.

Kept looking to see where this wine was plugged in because it's fucking electric!

Covered in a rich, earthy, funk, but still precise. White pepper, buckets of lemon juice, & snap peas. Finish breaks away from the fruit & gives you an enjoyable mineral driven finish.
