On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and zesty, with a bit more mid-palate amplitude than the filigreed Badstube, great focus and grip. Elegant German Riesling at it's finest! Lime curd and Granny Apples.
Medium ruby-purple, the 2019 So Fresh Syrah So Hot is scented of blackcurrants with notes of tar, earth, blood orange and dried flowers. The medium-bodied palate is bright and fresh with lifted, peppery accents.
A blend of fruit from predominately Wenzlau Vineyard, which we have a long-term lease and now farm. The wine is a combination of barrel and tank fermentation, with the majority in barrel raised in larger 500L puncheon.
The 2016 Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett offers a very clear, bright and delicate bouquet with very fine slate aromas and very fine but fully ripe apple, pear, and quince fruits. Palate is very mineral, with a splash of that gasoline quality. Superb energy
Reveals raspberry, pomegranate, cherry, and plum notes, crisp, tart acidity, some flowery characteristics, and a lovely, medium-bodied mid-palate. Intense and vibrant at first, with vivid, juicy wild berry, black cherry and raspberry fruit.
The Burgundian 2003 Pinot Noir Kistler Vineyard shows a low pH style with high acidity, crisp, red currant, cranberry notes with a hint of rose petal. Mature, with dried cherry, plum and cedary oak flavors. The anise and fruit flavors are appealing!
It has long been suggested that Mondeuse Noire is related to Syrah, and this was confirmed by DNA profiling. This relationship carries through into the two varieties' wines, which have in common their rich pigmentation and spicy aroma.
Loersch’s Glimmerschiefer (named such for the glimmering effect of these grey slate soils in the Mosel sun) leads with lovely notes of juicy peach and nectarine with a lemon/lime citric acid character and snappy minerals to finish.
Müller Thurgau is a vine obtained from the crossing of Riesling and Silvaner to adapt to the cold climates of the north. This is floral in the way great riesling can be, not overwhelming perfume like gewürtz, but like being outside on a spring morning!
