Dried peaches, loquat, nectarines and apricots are all out on show. Behind that, though, are more subtle notes of flint and limestone. The acidity will set your mouth on fire, but it comes with sweeping, comprehensive oiliness to keep this rotund. Medium-to full-bodied but very, very long with lingering lemon pith. Drink or hold.

On the palate, this is a medium-bodied, round and piquant dry Riesling that has been bottled with less than two grams of residual sugar, which underlines the crystalline purity and refreshing mineral character. The wine reveals a long and intense, quite powerful and textured as well as salty and piquant finish. This is the first release of the Im Mühlenberg, and it is an impressive wine that has been aged on the lees until the end of June. - Stephan Reinhardt

A bit austere at first, but gains charm with air. Expressive and intense, with quince, grapefruit and mineral aromas and flavors. Offers length and complexity. Harmonious overall, but should get better with several years...   A bit austere at first, but gains charm with air. Expressive and intense, with quince, grapefruit and mineral aromas and flavors. Offers length and complexity. Harmonious overall, but should get better with several years of aging. Best from 2022 through 2034. – AZ

That’s not to say that certain elements conducive to austerity are absent: peach kernel piquancy, ash, crushed stone. On top of which, there is only one lone gram of residual sugar. The feel is full and firm, the minerally concentrated finish persistently pithy but juicy, and there is a welcome, saliva-inducing hint of salinity. “This is my new favorite child,” quipped Dönnhoff, “but it still has to finish school,” meaning not that these old vines need to be taught anything, but rather that he and Cornelius are still learning how to best channel this site’s and those vines’ potential. -- David Schildknecht
