Tasting Notes

The pick of the vintage here, and one of the most buttery and calm and savory and complex Rieslings in this entire offering; the Rheingau at its most genial, as one would expect from loess-y soils (with tertiary marl and loess-loam also); loess gives what I call “wet-cereal” aromas to Riesling and GrüVe. This being ’16 there’s a toothsome herbal crunch giving a vibrant yang and snap to the prevailing ripple, sway and glide.
