Attractive aromas of laurel and cassis open up this wine, easily the best from this producer. Right now the tannins are a little harsh and extracted, but the fruit expression is great and that in combination with the lively acids Read more
A nicely rounded Chardonnay with loads of brioche and freshly baked bread notes – leesy rather than oaky, thank goodness. Not whole lot of fruit, but an attractive chalky texture and some salty excitement on the finish.
Smells and tastes a bit like some old school Hungarian white wines – rather a lot of oxidation, and tails off to a vegetal finish. Not without interest, but hardly what one wants in such a young Pinot Blanc.

Shy on the nose, with a hint of stone fruits and flint. Tight and citrus-driven on the attack, but then evolves quickly into a slightly more vegetal note – which is unexpected. Fascinating to compare this with the Ried Freudshofer Read more
A bit stinky on the nose right now, with pretty extreme reduction (struck match), but bright and energetic on the palate, with rounded pear and white peach fruit and some delicate lees influence. The slightly oily texture is the only Read more
