Yet, behind the juiciness, the palate has quite a firm structure and the finish is anything but short. From organically grown grapes. Fair'n Green certification. Drink or hold.

But the wine’s sheer density reflects a buffering capacity that keeps the acids sufficiently in check, and there is just enough flesh of white peach to ward-off outright austerity. The aforementioned blade must belong to a prehistoric knife, because the formidably penetrating finish here, projects a striking impression of stony micro-impingements. If ever there were a vinous instance of nomen est omen, this is surely it (Kahl = “bare-naked”)! -- David Schildknecht
