Gaisbohl GC Riesling 2009
A monopol vineyard owned exclusively by the estate, a rich and slightly oily nose, and ripe strawberry lime cordial viscosity and weight, with full texture from a little residual sugar.
Hohenmorgen GC Riesling 2009
A very delicate toasted nut and green minerality, with less intensity of fruit and more mid-palate savoury texture and length.
Pechstein GC Riesling 2009
Similar to the J.L. Wolf I had tasted the previous day, showed the influence of the unique volcanic basalt soil composition. It showed a much darker more intense yet subdued fruit character, was quite brooding for a riesling, had great purity yet many dimensions.
Ungeheuer Riesling Trocken 2003
Retaining very ripe tropical pineapple primary fruit, but picking up some nougat and honey bottle-aged characters, lacking in oiliness though.
Reiterpfad Riesling 1999
Some wild sweet spice subtlety on the nose, and a glazed orange and custard palate, very soft and slightly toasty.
Pechstein “R” 1998
A special sweet wine produced from an outstanding vintage. It had a lovely rich yet haunting nose of kerosene, nuts, caramel and lime, with astonishing complexity and depth on the palate, creamy toasty and earthy at the same time. I was tempted to buy a bottle at only 35€.
