This wine’s calling card is its electric acidity, which provides a poignant counterbalance to the wine’s plump feel on the palate. Ripe citrus notes of pineapple and orange offer plenty of flavor to go along with the superb length. It’s ready to drink, yet should prove capable of aging at least 5–6 years.
Perhaps because of its slow, natural fermentation in large casks and the resulting lees contact, this wine shows a bit of toasty, mealy character and a slightly creamy texture. It’s a weighty Riesling (for the Mosel, anyway), with ripe notes of peach complementing citrus fruit and a dry, stony finish.
Waves of smoke and crushed stone add a dusty minerality to the honeyed pineapple and apple cider notes on this wine. Just a shade off-dry, it’s round and a bit creamy on the palate, brightened by a bristle of acidity and a steely finish.
