(WA94-95 points) The 2014 Morstein GG is chalky and limey, but closer to the Kirchspiel than the Brunnenhäuschen at this early stadium. Subtle flavors of morels and porcini along with lime rind flavors lead to a dense, intense and refreshingly piquant palate. The 2014 is very pure, mineral, firmly structured and finesse-full. The finish is very persistent and displays lots of limes and chalky flavors in the extremely salty finish. Great potential. - Stephan Reinhardt

The Westhofen Morstein seems the most vibrantly citrusy among Wittmann’s 2014 GG bottlings. Its lemon-lime acidity is almost puckering, but cushioned by creamy textured layers of tangerine, grapefruit and yellow cherry flavor. It’s a powerful, elegant wine with a deep mineral finish. Drinks well now but should intensify in minerality through 2020. — A.I.

The wine itself has a cool, chalky texture, with the airiness of seashell-ridden stone. The heat of the alcohol spices the ripe lemon and pineapple flavors, and yet the wine comes off as fresh and lean, with a salty finish that encourages another sip. Give it another eight years in the cellar, at least.

Wet stone, moss and alkaline notes convey an austere but intriguing impression, accompanying high-toned almond extract and maraschino cherry as well as faintly nose-prickling intimations of the lime and crab apple that then tartly saturate the palate. High-toned, faintly Saar-like cherry-almond notes as well as vibrant mineral impingements persist into a penetrating finish, thereby mitigating the sense of austerity conveyed by a wine this firm in feel, palpably dense, and phenolically severe. -- David Schildknecht

Wine Spectator, June 2016
Concentrated flavors of lemongrass, dried sage, anise and green apple are supported by firm acidity. The long finish features notes of dried ginger and glazed citrus. Drink now through 2019. 1,080 cases made.–KM
