"An elegant Riesling Spätlese from an exceptional Saar vintage. Delicate notes of apricot, peach, passion fruit and pineapple sashay out of the glass. The balance between opulent fruit and racy acid is pulled taut by a slate-tipped minerality unique to the Saar. And the true concentration and density of this Riesling is revealed in its exceptional finish. While drinking wonderfully now, this wine will continue to mature over the next 25 years." —winemaker
"Scents and palate presence of honeydew and muskmelon, quince and mango make for a heady, luscious performance to which hints of basil and cress lend cooling and invigoratingly incisive counterpoint. A faint note of white raisin points toward desiccation and botrytis, although Hanno Zilliken noted that this wine resulted from a harvest of entire, largely healthy bunches. Alkaline, stony and saline notes add further complexity and mouthwatering appeal to a long finish that is at once soothing and stimulating." —David Schildknecht, Vinous
