Other Reviews....
It's been said, perhaps a million times, that riesling has a peachy aroma. Now this wine redefines what peachy means for this grape, so beautiful is the peach aroma in the nose here. Gigantic concentration, but it remains super-bright and pure. The power at the finish is married to totally uplifting freshness. Drink or hold.

This is a little more like the Pettenthal on the nose, wild and fumy and herbal. A high percentage of the fruit was basket pressed. But on the palate it is tight, pure driving citrus fruit, very different from what the nose predicted. Mouth-watering intensity and purity. There’s concentration, depth and weight of fruit but the acidity keeps it light on its feet, and a long spiced/mineral finish. Long salty aftertaste increases the freshness. Impressive but very primary and hard to taste, like tasting something that should be mixed with water before drinking. Too intense? Wait.
