Lemon and tangerine notes play on the svelte, linear palate. This is totally refreshing and enlivening, with an almost electric lemon verve. Lovely now; sure to evolve. Drink 2018–2030.

The sliced lemon and green apple character with papaya are impressive. Full body, yet agile and energetic. Vivid fruit at the finish. Drink now.

On the palate, this is a pure, fresh, mineral, beautifully linear and finessed Riesling that reflects the cooler part of the Loibenberg. The finish remains fresh, shows nice grip and salinity as well as the classic fruit concentration of a cooler vintage. A beautiful Loibenberg that is more generous and round compared to the corresponding Steinertal that is more built on freshness and grip! Tasted in July 2017, one week after the bottling. -Stephan Reinhardt
