Chilled a little over cellar temperature, notes forthcoming...

Nose has insane qualities, not sure I've ever experienced a Riesling like this, beeswax, grapefruit pith, fresh cut white grapefruit, freshly cut spring hay and faint wet limestone.

Palate is restrained, yet screaming acidity, pulverized SweeTARTS, honey poured over citrus pith, limestone dust and faint white flowers.

Holy crap this is good!

Bocksbeutel with a glass stopper, unique closure for the classic Franconia bottle.

BOOM. Great nose. Acid fruit mineral explosion on the palate. Long finish. Wow. Wow. Wow. I freaking love this.

Holy crap! At 5.5 years old this has come alive. Wow. Stunning ethereal nose of white flowers, lanolin like in a Roches Neuves single vineyard Saumur Blanc, hint of grapefruit, some sweet greens, lemon zest, so complex. 9.4 on nose alone. What a palate though. Stunning in its elegance and finesse. So chisled and clean with opulence, depth and slamming acidity to bring it all home. Exquisite inner mouth perfume. Complex like nothing else and so juicy. This is as epic as I've ever had a wine from Franken. Holy crap this is good.
