I made a big mistake with this wine. Opened it a day before the intended drinking time, but totally forgot about it, so it was left open in the fridge for 3 days. Usually I would say KP's wines would fare well even after that amount of oxygen intake, but my critical mistake was taking it cross-country on a flight after that 3 days. The result - a slightly oxidised Kirschpiel. Who would have thought that, given how tight this cuvee typically is when young. Anyway, lesson learnt. The structure was impressive though. Tasting notes for the taster glass I had when it was first opened was consistent with previous run ins - like drink liquid rock, cool, precise, concentrated, only hints of exotic ripeness, lengthy. Playing favourites, and rating it based on this 😉

Such a nice bottle. Gone in seconds. Wish I had seconds.
