Tasting Notes

I think that the basic material—in this case old-vines Gaisberg—was so precise and so expressive in 2013 that it has (up to now) resisted the tertiary development of the old-school cellar regime. Which is to say, the wine is sensationally beautiful, a supernal thing in the making, with each facet of great Gaisberg but just the bare beginnings of the warm sweet woodsy thing these wines are “meant” to do. It is brilliant, but is brilliance what we seek from this wine? Perhaps ’13 will simply be an outlier in the sequence, or maybe it holds reserves of something currently obscure. Holding its breath and waiting. I am vehemently curious to taste it again… -Terry Theise
