Other Reviews....
From a cooler side valley of the cru, the 2019 Riesling trocken Pettenthal GG is pure and flinty on the nose as well as displaying coolish terroir aromas. Lean and rich at the same time, this is a coolish, pure and silky-textured, salty Riesling with enormous grip yet also tannins. The finish is slightly austere. This is still a baby, and I am curious where the wine is going to. Will it reman austere or gain some texture?

The aromas of dried chamomile, mint, oolong leaf tea and delicate yellow fruit give this GG a very special style. Not for those seeking power or weight, rather for fans of delicacy. In fact, it feels almost weightless at the long, dry finish.
