Where the oak in Leth’s Grüner seems to work, with the Riesling it feels a little muted. The acidity sings, and there is generous, honeyed fruit, but overall there’s a slight lack of real excitement or elegance.
Full of lift and energy, with delicate lemon zest and honeysuckle, this is a step up from this producer’s Grüner in the same vineyard. A fairly ripe style, but with plenty of freshness and absolutely ready to drink.
Honeyed, spicy and tangy, with lip smacking salty acids that really lift up the wine. It lasts and lasts in the glass, with the spiced apple notes mutating into a creamy, saline finish. Enjoyable now, and should go the distance for a few years too.
Full, creamy GV with a gorgeous leesy consistency, nice blossoms on the nose and a mineral streak running through its considerable length. Just cut pineapple fruit and white pepper. Very expressive and enjoyable now.
