This is an impressive Riesling, full of tension, concentration and energy. - Stephan Reinhardt collapse

Alkaline chalky suggestions underlie and extend the finish--or at least they certainly strike Bodenstein and me as chalky, although perhaps our imaginations are under the influence of geological knowledge. There is scant fleshy peachiness, but I’m happy here for whatever juiciness I can get. Lemon zest further enhances the sense of active, faintly gum-numbing grip. I’d give this formidable, stern stuff a bit more time in the cellar before broaching a bottle. -- David Schildknecht collapse
