Lively and citrussy, lifted and focused, not at all heavy. Crunchy green apple fruit, very primary at the moment but all the components for a long life are there. The stift is a Benedictine monastery with a history going back to the 11th century.
Bone dry, herbal/mineral style with the barest suggestion of GV fruit. Subtle core of leesy texture, but even a bit cheesy on the finish. A bit on the austere side, and with a rather harsh burn from the alcohol. Demeter certified, spontaneous fermentation.
Honeyed, rich palate with great drive and focus and a nice salty finish. Youthful, primary nose with some pineapple and tropical. Quite monothematic but a great big slab of texture and GV goodness, handling its alcohol and weight extremely well.
