Cork was pushing up and this needed to be opened. Gorgeous nose. So many rocks. Petrol, lemon, lime zest, mineral and even a hint of rainer cherries. Really aromatic and stunning. Palate is super mineral and dense and opulent (this is 06) with nice texture and freshness. Good acids and nice citrus fruits on the long finish. Really Long. Excellent and at its apogee.

Incredible concentration and a powerful nose. The palate was thick and fruity but finished dry. Great balance and length. #schaferfrohlich #grossesgewächs #gg #nahe #riesling #germany #ctbucklinwine
