On the palate this rich, full-bodied and tightly woven Riesling is a melting stone, very intense and concentrated, highly complex and expressive, finishing with a persistent salinity. Store this great Austrian Riesling for at least ten years and then enjoy it for another ten. One of the greatest dry Rieslings I have tasted for a long time. Highly expensive, though. -Stephan Reinhardt

A beautiful wine, showing intense nuances with dried mango, papaya and cooked apple. It’s full-bodied with spices, flint and dried fruit. Pineapple, too. Flavorful and persistent. Drink or hold.

Maritime alkaline and saline scents similarly anticipate palate complexity, and this Riesling finishes with a dynamic, almost ferocious crescendo of a finish. With time in bottle, it should calm down to the point where greater nuance emerges. -David Schildknecht
