Site-typical vanilla-tinged apple dominates the nose and lush, creamy palate of this seamlessly rich, polished performance, to which musky, nose-wrinkling notes of narcissus, piquancy of apple seeds and vanilla bean and wet stone underpinnings add interest. The palate projects an uncanny combination of creaminess and almost custardy density with vibrancy born of hidden but highly efficacious acidity. Hints of resin and lanolin point to the newness of the small barrels in which this was raised and translate into a very slightly drying spot in what is otherwise an astonishingly persistent, fruit-filled and suitably slaty finish. Over time, this may well rival its Zeltinger Sonnenuhr counterpart.- DS
