This Riesling shows a serious side with its architectural structure and intricate details, but it’s still positively, lip-smackingly delicious. Sandstone and basalt sub-soils lend nuances of herbs and wood smoke on the citric, lightly oaked nose and body. Round, lush and lovely with great aging potential!
A penetrating nose of peppermint and wintergreen anticipates the simultaneously cooling and glowing impression conveyed on an expansive and silken yet crushed-stone-suffused palate. Mirabelle provides a welcome midpalate suggestion of fruitiness. Like the corresponding Jesuitengarten, this finishes with tongue-tingling vibrancy and remarkable persistence. At the same time, lime-like juiciness refreshes, and strong salinity milks the salivary glands. Hopefully, this concentrated essence of its site will permit unfiltered bottling.
