Weiser Kunstler Gaispfad Grosse Eule Riesling 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 'Grosse Eule,' which translates to 'Great Owl' in German, is the playful name the estate uses for its 'Grosse Gewächs,' or Grand Cru dry Riesling. Weiser-Künstler, although they farm arguably some of the greatest vineyards in the Mosel, are not in the VDP and thus cannot call any wine they make a 'Grosses Gewächs.' The flavor profile feels warmer and saltier, as if watercress, cashews and orange rind were all mashed up together. There's something that meaty about the wine. On the palate there is a round fruit, complicated and nervous and dense and compact, but it shows its ripeness through the juicy-fruit midpalate, a kiwi-mango-and-pear-and-green-apple combination that is quirky and complicated...and fun." -Importer
