Georg Breuer Terra Montosa Riesling Trocken
It’s the vestibule beyond which are the Grand Crus, basically; in this version there’s some phenolic action (from a new Stückfass), and it shows the muscular side of Riesling, making an adamant point in its salty gravelly way.
Press & Reviews
"An expansive white, featuring dried mango and lemon bar flavors, with accents of verbena and thyme. The minerality and texture provide an elegant mouthfeel. Powerful and fresh acidity give this firmness and focus. The finish is minerally, showing hints of coconut chips. Best from 2021 through 2030. 63 cases imported."
"As noted in the introduction to my coverage of the Breuer 2015 collection, there is a recent influx of new casks in this cellar, and one catches a faint, resinous whiff of Pfalz oak on the nose here. But it’s not obtrusive, and there is a rounded feel to the palate that may also owe something to the presence of young wood. Scents of lemon and lime are accompanied by sea breeze and a hint of bittersweet floral perfume. Juicy citrus persists into an animating finish mouthwateringly tinged with salt and mingled with savory meat stock."
