Wow, dry, richly fruited and spiced with minerals and also wonderfully wood inflected. Quite a unique view of Rheingau/Germany. Would love to see this in a year like 2015

Good as F. The tasting note could 3 pages long! So much packed into this wine. Trust me find some, drink some.

Second time for me tasting this wine and I'm still impressed by the complexity. So many layers of different aromas. Very impressive. On the palate its a totally differential approach than all the GGs I tasted before. Much rounder, softer with pure elegance and a super, super subtle power. This Sankt Nikolaus plays in a totally different league. Kühn told us that he wants to do a different wine out of the grape variety than the other producers. Like the Tements do in Austria with their Sauvignon Blancs he said.

Clear, bright golden yellow color. Intense, developing and astonishing nose, which has nothing in common with usual Rheingau Riesling: tobacco notes, musty apple, ginger tea. Wonderful and unique!
Bone dry. Complex wine with layers and layers of different flavors. Ripe, mellow fruit, salty mineral notes, spices, herbs. Really great! All aromas linger on the palate for very long time. Definitively not an easy drinking wine, it is really demanding, but it makes so much joy to drink. Great potential. A masterpiece.

These wines are cool, and this one I like quite a bit. There is some stonefruit bitterness behind a pleasant amount of bright acid.

Way to young. Hope that all its components may add up one day. At the moment this is interesting but no pure pleasure.

В аромате узбекский лимон, сладкий апельсин, ананас, имбирь, пряные специи, тальк. Насыщенно и интенсивно. В развитии сухие хлебные крошки, после долгой аэрации появляется тон пепла. Полное тело, концентрированный вкус; в основе взрыв сладких цитрусов, дополненный нотами зеленого чая с жасмином и сливочной помадки. Плотное, живое и изящное, с вибрирующей кислотностью в очень долгом, слегка солоноватом, послевкусии. Возбуждающее и держащее в напряжении вино. 18/20

Fet doft med lime, petroleum och mineral. Torr smak, friskt, mineralpackat, hög syra och fatkaraktär.
