Tasting Notes

Decidedly on the dry side, drier-feeling than either Kabinett; it has the strong earthiness of (parts of) Kupp; in any case a fine crunchy Riesling with excellent balance though not charming balance; it’s for purists and rock-heads and people who love radicchio and frisée in their salads. — Terry Theise

Review:
This is, as usual, sourced from the Braunfels Einzellage (whose prime portion was traditionally known as “Vols” or “Volz”). Tinglingly bright and animating, it’s dominated by clementine, lime and apple, but displays an intriguing array of stony, ashen and mouthwateringly saline accents. The feel is flatteringly silken and the finish adds a lusciously ripe suggestion of honeydew melon while remaining brightly citric and transparent to myriad mineral nuances.
