The bouquet is already very polished, wafting from the glass in a superb blend of lime, white peach, wild yeasts, smoky overtones, a wisp of petrol, great minerality and a nice touch of cress-like topnotes. On the palate the wine is pure, full and a very refined in personality, with fine mid-palate depth, ripe acids and great focus and grip on the long, vibrant and nascently complex finish. Fine, fine juice.

Earthen hints of pollen and smoke mingle into zesty lime and green plum in this spine-tingling Riesling.

It's dry and medium bodied on the palate but juxtaposes a silken texture against sharp tines of electric acidity. The finish is exceptionally long and steely. A gem that's likely better to hold till 2021. It will reward extended cellaring as well. ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA

From a steep (up to 60% slope) and stony plot with 55- to 60-year-old vines on red slate and quartzite soils, the 2017 Frühlingsplätzchen Riesling GG opens with a super clear and spicy, flinty and herbal-scented nose of...   From a steep (up to 60% slope) and stony plot with 55- to 60-year-old vines on red slate and quartzite soils, the 2017 Frühlingsplätzchen Riesling GG opens with a super clear and spicy, flinty and herbal-scented nose of crushed stones. Rich and concentrated on the palate, this is a dense and powerful yet salty-piquant and complex dry Riesling from spectacular terroir. The 2017 is still a baby but with great terroir expression and refreshing salinity. Highly promising. Tasted from AP 18 18 in July 2019. - SR

The nose here is effusively perfumed, and the mouth fills with flowers as well. Suggestions of greenery lend an aura of spring meadow.

Suggestions of greenery lend an aura of spring meadow. Nettle, black tea, lime and tart-edged, crunchy white currant emerge on the palate, conveying a slightly Ruwer-like impression. Glossiness of feel helps buffer the bright acidity. Skin-chewing and flower-chomping lend a stimulating hint of bitterness to the multi-layered, vibrantly-sustained and infectiously juicy finish. One senses here – in addition to the distinct virtues of this site – that we are dealing with fruit that hung more than a week longer than that in the Schlossböckelheimer Kupfergrube, yet was picked at significantly higher acidity. -- David Schildknecht

Minerally and firm, this needs time to come together completely. Best from 2022 through 2030. 150 cases made. — AZ
