A spectacular just maturing nose of deisel fuel, green onion tops, and slate but the palate remains wonderfully fresh with a prettty sweet character balanced by cutting acidity. The fruit is a bit apricotty but with the zesty, limy freshness of acidity. Wonderful and still youthful. 92pts

Developed nose with a medium intensity of pear fruit, meadow flowers, ripe peach, honey, minerality, botrytis and hints of smoke. Medium sweet on the palate, high acidity, low alcohol and light body. Medium intensity of toffee, strawberry, rhubarb, hints of fennel and wet stone. Medium(+) length. A fine Spätlese in its traditional sense, meaning it's not a lush wine of downgraded Auslese level but shows lots of ripe fruit and at the same time has a radiant acidity level that made me beg for more. Enough acidity to keep it alive for a few more years probably. Its complexity on the nose and the palate is deeply satisfying.

Nectarine, sour apple and blue cheese on the nose. Surprisingly full bodied with granny smith apple, lemon rind and grapefruit. Refreshing and long. Gorgeous.

    Gunflint and smoke on the nose. Graphite flavors with a bit of residual sugar, lots of citrus fruit. A very interesting wine -- love it.

    A striking nose of linoleum and spring onions. However, in the mouth the wine still has a lot of fruit. It's full of searing acidity and is very rich and viscous. Really unique, well aged and very nice.
