Powerful and dramatic yet sleek and polished, this has acidity that's both bright, lemony and mineral. Better from 2018 and has long-term ageing potential.
Made from Riesling grown in the heat-retaining basalt soils of the Pechstein vineyard, this dry, intensely mineral wine balances nerve and tension and against luscious white peach and yellow-cherry flavors. It's silky and lithe on the palate but jolted by electric acidity and a long, steely finish. Tasted in early 2018, it's still closed and taut. Hold till 2023 and enjoy for years to come. *Editors' Choice* (AI)
Penetratingly pungent and high-toned aromas of peppermint, boxwood and lemon zest cover over any aromatic influence there might be from a relatively new Austrian cask. The feel here is polished and strikingly waxy. Alkaline and saline notes serve for enhanced invigoration and saliva-inducement on a resonant and rich yet refreshingly bright finish. Last tasted from cask shortly before an August 2017 bottling, this wine will have a lot more to say given a bit of time. (DS)
Offers aromas of hops and jasmine, while the palate exhibits flavors of peach and apricot, followed by sea salt notes that persist through the lingering aftertaste. Elegant, bright and firmly structured, showing good balance throughout. Drink now through 2026. (AZ)
Butterscotch, aniseed, vanilla are very seductive aromas, but not of Riesling as we know it. It’s all done in the best possible taste, and the rich, creamy, full-bodied expression on the palate would not be out of place in a fine white burgundy of the Puligny-Montrachet school. French winemaker Matthieu Kauffmann may have come from champagne house Bollinger, but he would also have learned a thing or two about oak in his time at Baden producer Salwey. Wood spice, hazelnuts and a gentle earthy note add complexity to an untraditional interpretation of Riesling Grosses Gewächs. (17.5/20 points) (MS)
