Finely knit and long, with the fruit and mineral notes echoing on the finish. Drink now through 2035. 320 cases made. — AN collapse

Bright straw-yellow. Penetrating aromas and flavors of minerals, lavender, lemon and vanilla bean are very long and clean and display laser-like precision.

Penetrating aromas and flavors of minerals, lavender, lemon and vanilla bean are very long and clean and display laser-like precision. The enamel-shattering acidity (the pH of 2.9 is really quite low) is buffered by a very ripe mouthfeel and a little bit of residual sugar (roughly 11 g/L residual sugar, though because of all that acidity, the wine tastes classically dry). Amazing purity of fruit and a crystalline mouthfeel bode well for this wine’s future; at once very acidic but also very ripe, this is a really amazing effort from Humbrecht. Very well done. -- Ian D'Agata collapse

The palate gives us tense, concentrated lemon and tangerine zest at first but you feel that there is more strength, almost raw force, at the core of this that still needs to develop and work out its balance. This is a big wine, energetic and dry, intense and generous but not yet fully fledged. Drinking it now would rob it of its as of yet untapped essence. For now it is lemon purity that holds sway but there will be so much more. Cellar from 2022–2035, at least. collapse

Coming from pure, thinner limestone soils, this is a tension-filled, pure and salty, but also rich and lush Riesling with great tension. Still closed but highly elegant, full of finesse and tension, this Riesling is provided with great length and aging potential. The 2015 Windsbuhl is going to be bottled with 12.4 grams of residual sugar and 12.3% alcohol. Fine tannins and grip here. Gorgeous, but keep it for ten years or more. So pure, so salty, so fresh and finessed. Tasted from the cask (on the fine lees already) in February 2017. To be bottled some days later.-SR collapse
