Other Reviews....
Tasted from the vat on April 30, 2018. The 2017 Aulerde Riesling GG offers a pure and chalky bouquet of ripe yellow-fleshed, almost tropical fruits along with dashes of lemon juice. Pure and lean but full of tension on the palate, this is a dry, firm and elegant Aulerde with juicy fruit and lovely balance. Good length and salinity and fine grip. Promising.
90-92 points
Stephan Reinhardt - Wine Advocate

Lavish yellow fruit, including some almost overripe pineapple. This just avoids tipping into opulence; there's healthy acidity and that lifts this monster dry riesling at the bold, herbal finish. From almost 70 year old vines. Biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.
