Yup! Prior notes apply, delicious.

24hr Update: This bottle and producer always benefit from an extended air time. A saline, honey, peach-lite note really shines today, just awesome.

Our first non-US Riesling for the 2017 vintage, looking quite positive! Decanted ~45m.

Nose has ripe peach, orange zest, fresh cut red apple and honey.
Palate is all about the citrus, a lemon juiced over top of a tangerine, then a bite of lime sprinkled with mineral dust. Crazy, but balanced acidity, just wow, what a lengthy finish!

Ahhhhhhh. Molsheim. Stunning. What a nose. Honey, tangerine, tangelo, super ripe fruit, just massive and dripping. What a nose. Ahhhhhh. Dense, chewy but so refined and pure. Wow, what an attack, mid, finish contrast. Long. Tons of mineral on the finish. Wow this is long and extracty.

Great overall balance and complexity.
I would opt to serve at room temperature to fully enjoy the (high) lingering acidity and the “mineral-bite” kicking in on the finish.

Wow wow. This is crazy delicious - exotic citrus/blood orange and yellow peaches on day one. Good mineral streak too. Very focused structure but not overly tight. Day three, more creaminess and it has gone full fruity pebbles on your palate. Don’t be afraid to drink now.

Maybe the best Molsheim I’ve had. Screaming nose. Palate is an explosion. Mineral. Apple. Acid. So rocky and juicy. Really palate staining. A remarkable effort. Bought from Fass selections.
