Riesling Dry Grosses Gewachs Forster Pechstein Von Buhl 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"...displays in spades the saline, briny and pungently herbal characteristics for which this site is known. Some experienced tasters might call it excessively reduced, but this particular pungency – however it’s chemically transmitted – and in this instance its suggestions of sage, lavender, pennyroyal, and citrus zest, are part and parcel of Pechstein. A palate-coating, high-glycerin impression as well as one of primary citrus and pit fruit juiciness transparent to myriad mineral nuances keeps this from seeming spare. Furthermore, the energy, lift, and saliva-inducing savor typical of the vintage stick with this wine all the way – and probably for the next decade...91" WA 02/10
