This viscous and unapologetically confectionary Rieslaner is a harvest of glazed pineapple, butterscotch and waves of eucalyptus heightened by a brightly citric palate. The evolution over the next 20-25 years will be almost unimaginable.

Winemaker Martin Franzen is coming into his own after beginning at Müller-Catoir with big shoes to fill. He’s taking things in stride and creating some real gems, like this mineral laden Riesling. It’s bold, dry yet delicate and with complexity that charms.

Lusciously ripe and possessed of an almost mind-numbing clarity, this exceptionally brilliant spätlese--harvested from vines planted atop a fragile deposit of löss and loam--will send ecstatic shivers down your spine.


Winemaker's Notes:

“GG” is the standard descriptor for Grosses Gewächs these days. Tasted from an unfiltered tank-sample the wine was explosively ripe and mineral, a classic portrait of mass and power having little to do with fruit as-such; peppery ’09 thrust, martial and almost haughty; can’t wait to see this guy in bottle.
