Well-characterised, lime and mandarin fruit with mouth-watering acidity and considerable refinement in terms of weight and texture. Beautifully balanced and focused, open for business now but will only improve
A big slab of slatey minerality, spicy and zesty. Belies its modest 12.5% ABV. Waxy, honeycomb notes. Lovely tangy expression which already feels very open and expressive. Athletic and lithe, just like the winery’s namesake animal. Spontaneous fermentation without temperature control (in steel tanks and large oak barrels).
Really bone dry, stony riesling with taut, almost sour acids and the barest hint of some tropical fruits. Starts to open a little with air, and finishes quite long. This feels like it really needs time, but could improve and flesh out nicely.
Apricot and green pepper notes, nice definition and fresh acids. Still young and primary, but this is crisp and focused, with a dry, mineral finish. A very elegant, classy style of Grüner. Hint of hay on the nose.
Reductive, rather wood influenced (buttery, some toasty notes). Fermented partly in Austrian acacia barrels, and this does seem to have left its imprint on the wine. A bit harsh, very salty on the finish. Lacking elegance, with rather harsh alcohols. Acidity is decent, this could come round but it’s not so much fun right now.
