Tremendous after a few hours in the decanter, and even better the next day. Exemplifies power and finesse like no other riesling. The incredible palate weight, electric acidity, not the mention the wacky fruit evolution (lime town straight up to exotic pineapples), and a finish that just keeps building. Perfect youngster!

Notes: One sip and BM commented that this can only be achieved in the vineyard. Analysis seems to agree too.

G/F: 3.5 g/l (~7 g/l RS)
TA: 7.9 g/l
pH: 2.77
Alc: 13.3%
H2M: 1.7
VA: 0.35 g/l

Pushing phenolic ripeness and concentration without sugar. Masterful balancing act to achieve that palate weight, with phenolics and RS.

When blinded, ACh first thought it might have been a Chardy, until the acidity kicks in. On the palate, spice and minerality too. Needs more time to truly reveal itself.

Not as exalted as the others on the table.
Overbearing acidity, tight and nervous.
Probably just way too young for me.
