Picking Abtserde in 2017 was an absolute pain. It was affected the worst by hail. Took us an entire day to sort and pick just one row, granted they were long rows. And not to mention the wasps... Devil spawns... these creatures. Thank God 2018 didn't see this problem.

Anyway, rant aside... This wine blew my mind... Again. Maybe I'm biased... But it's just so pure... So fucking pure... Mineral hedonistic crystalline precision! If that even makes sense. Explosive pleasure! In short, heavenly 🤤

NB: I rated this 9.9 just to differentiate it from the sheer cacophony of flavour in the G-Max. In comparison, the 17' Absterde's a little closed atm. But still... Great stuff. Really great stuff.
