Spicy and buttery, with a hint of freshly backed bread on the nose and perhaps the merest tinge of botrytis? Textured and leesy, with fairly lean fruit. Quite harmonious, if showing the more vegetal side of Grüner. Not as charming as some.
This is Grüner but with a Riesling-like turbocharge of acidity, and beautiful tangy fruit. Citrus notes dominate, and crushed rocks provide a long and very delicate finish. Very enjoyable, and perfectly balanced.
Tight, well defined apple fruit with a dollop of capsicum. Very linear, with fresh fruit acids and subtle saline hints. The texture is creamy and full bodied, exactly as expected from Nussberg’s South facing slopes.
Whitecurrants and green plums dominate the fruit, and a fine seam of mineral salts brings some freshness to this relatively high alcohol wine. Acidity and definition are certainly not lacking, but at 14.5% this packs a punch.
Flinty and reductive on the nose, with sculpted capsicum and green apple fruit. Great definition and a big slab of salty freshness on the finish. You need to be a Grüner fan, but if you are, this is great.
Bone dry and playing more to Grüner’s vegetal side than the fruit, but with lovely mineral interplay and dancing acids – saline, crushed rock hints that bring interest and freshness. Characterful and enjoyable.
