White peach, mirabelle, and quince with their pits and pips seem to be shadowed by their distilled essences and are saturated with brine and oyster shell. Lusciously juicy and exhilaratingly dynamic in its finishing fruit-mineral interaction, this mouth-watering Riesling ought to be experienced in its youth, but will almost certainly also bear following for 12-15 years. The low-acidity of the vintage is not felt at all, except to the extent that - as with this year's Goldert Muscat as well - 15 grams of residual sugar proves sufficient to result in noticeable though deliciously-integrated sweetness.
Pale, almost colorless in the glass, this wine smells of golden apples and wet stones. In the mouth the wine has a moderate sweetness, with flavors of lemon and apple, and a hint of something woody, like a wet deck in the rain. A finish of grapes.
50% Pinot Gris, 45% Welsh Riesling, 5% Muscat Ottonel
Intense aromas of roses, rose oil and water, refreshing citrus aromas, strawberries and cherry character, light muscat, very subtle tannins give the wine character.
Attractive bouquet of grapefruit zest, over white blossom and fine herb spice. The palate displays juicy characters of fresh tropical fruit supported by elegant balance and a lingering aftertaste of ripe yellow peach.
