Thrilled to see a balanced yet textural weissburgunder that actually had some personality.
Disappointed to taste a very simple grauburgunder, presenting as out-of-balance with too much sweetness and lacking in extension on the palate.
Riesling Trocken 2010
A great expression of cool-climate riesling, lovely and fresh citrus notes with good acid fruit balance.
Wachenheimer Riesling Trocken 2010
Lovely floral peach nectarine freshness on the nose, and some residual sugar derived texture and viscosity to offset the acids.
Wachenheimer Riesling Spatlese Trocken 2010
Much more subtle and haunting on the nose, and significantly more complex and intense, finishing with a slight herbal spice element.
Pechstein Spatlese Trocken 2010
Sourced from the top parcel, and has a very volcanic explosive nature on the nose and palate, with everything turned up to 11. It also presents as very wild and unpredictable, something that would be fascinating to see develop in the bottle.
