96/100 – James Suckling

“A stunning dry riesling with sliced pear, apple, flowers and honey. White pepper, too. Full body. Bitter lemon and hints of honey come through. Creamy and beautiful. Like a grand cru riesling. Tiny production.” – James Suckling

Tasting Note: A true reflection of the terroir and winemaker’s skill, this Riesling is notable for its intensely aromatic nose coupled with a soft and creamy, yet powerful mouthfeel and lingering freshness. Crisp aromas of citrus fruit, ripe peach and Williams pear give way to a palate of lime, champagne grapefruit and exotic lychee, enhanced by fine herb notions. Well-balanced acidity and very long dry, refreshing finish to offer a tantalising taste sensation. Delicate with great power on the palate – truly scrumptious!

Winemaking Notes: “The grapes were whole bunch pressed then fermented and aged for 9 months in French oak puncheons, on its fine lees. No fining and only very light filtration.” – Hans Herzog
