Apple, lime and honeydew melon are laced with fennel and mint on the nose, and the lusciously juicy, silken palate displays a lovely combination of cooling and nippy herbal notes, the latter represented by coriander seed and cress. At 12.5% alcohol, this is a relatively full as well as lush Riesling, but its stimulating and refreshing finish manages to evince a welcome hint of buoyancy.

Very enjoyable
Only one dimensional though
The spectrum of the scents didn't move much from the fruits

A truly unique late release; allow me to present Heymann-Löwenstein Schieferterrassen 1987. From a poor vintage, this was not officially released back in the days due to its crazy level of tart acidity, unripe fruit and overall unbalanced personality. To celebrate that it’s been 30 years since bottling, the winery have changed their mind. And it’s amazing! Clarity and an amazingly youthful appearance and fruit profile are hallmarks here. For acidity masochists only.

Monumentally complex. A stunning example of an “entry level” offering from the estate.

Lovely smoky/honey/mineral nose backed up with some, bruised apple, overripe guava and dried ginger. In the mouth the mineral dryness rails against the smoky, glycerol and mineral lime fruit

Light golden color. Super petrol white flowers stone fruit. Thicker but lean. A paradox. Great wine.

25000 L made last year.. very nice wine (the working horse of the winery) I thought I am missing some acidity but might be just more sweet..
