Still seriously funky (reduction), but behind that is enormous berry fruit and after all the juicy stuff is done comes a slew of herbal-mineral character at the whiplash finish. Drink now or hold.
From roughly 55-year-old vines on red slate and in a very steep plot, the 2016 Nahe Riesling Frühlingsplätzchen "GG" opens with a super pure, precise and herbal/stony bouquet with flint stone aromas and a touch of red berries. Full-bodied, intense and very elegant on the silky-textured palate, this Riesling has a firm structure with piquant acidity but also shows great finesse and elegance. This is a dense and well-concentrated but highly delicate Riesling with a long, very precise and crystalline finish. (SR)
Expansive, with a glossy texture, underscored by a vivid structure that defines the bergamot, Korean pear, grapefruit and iodine notes. The acidity, though intense, is beautifully integrated, carrying this to a long aftertaste. Lovely now, but should get much better in the years to come. (AZ)
Strongly mineral on the nose. Very 'cool' and classic. Some traditionalists may find the nose a bit too pungent and un-fruity. And it certainly has a way to go... but it is SO juicy and drinkable. (JR)
