Pepper dominates the flavors, showing off the quince and pear fruits. There is perhaps too much sulfur at this touch, so let it blow off when opening and before drinking.

Steely and aristocratic on the palate, showing darker fruits and more acidity than the Loibenberg, with concentrated green mango, yellow plum and celery flavors over a layer of flinty slate.
