Savory tones of crushed slate, smoke and honeycomb are brightened by layers of concentrated peach and apricot in this delicately textured yet penetrating spätlese. It's sweet and ripe yet steely and filigreed, with a reverberating backbone of acidity.
It does display perfectly ripe Spätlese fruit and a touch of over-ripeness... The attack on the palate is quite racy, leading the wine immediately to a crisp, crunchy, very clear, lush and finessed finish with good grip and tension.
Scents of honeydew, kiwi and Persian melon set the themes for a lushly fruited palate performance. A glossy feel enhances the sense of richness and lushness, which is beautifully counterposed against the wine’s alcoholic levity and animation. Piquant, tart crunch of kiwi seeds and brightness of lime lend invigoration to a vibrantly sustained and mouthwateringly saline finish.
Tons of herbs and quite some yeast on the nose. The latter is the result of minimal handling in the cellar. Succulent and well-structured with a very clean, crisp finish.
Very pure, but with intense acidity redolent of grapefruit giving zip to the nectarine, white peach and lemon oil notes. Asian spice and elderflower flavors mark the long, mouthwatering finish.
Herbal, box-leaf aromatics, but the palate is so much more charming! Intense peachiness and really pretty bite of grapefruit pith bitterness. Fantastic length and vibrant angle-grinding structure.
