From the Critics:

  • **Only 10 cases imported to the US!
    "The GE (which stands for Grosse Eule) is the Weiser-Künstler answer to the GG and is a wine which stays longer on its fine lees is bottled late. The 2011 version is still quite reduced yet hints at a great nose of white peach, pear and earthy spices as well as great balance on the palate. The wine is still marked by primary notes of fermentation and exhibits a quite firm tannic structure in the finish. This needs now a good year or two to find its balance but should then deliver upon its outstanding potential. 2014-2021." - 92 Pts Mosel Fine Wines
  • "Originating in the stressfully-dry, terraced upper portion of this once celebrated site that can only ripen low-yielding vines, Weiser and Kunstler's 12% alcohol 2011 Trabener Gaispfad Riesling Grosse Eule displays lovely, high-toned herbal essences including hints of mint and shrubbery that accent juicy apple and melon, along with similar clarity and mineral intricacy to the corresponding Ellergrub. But there is a more infectious juiciness here and a greater sense of interaction to the intersection of fruit and somehow shimmering mineral matter that dominates the wine’s finish. Look for delight through at least 2020."

    "The 'creative tension' of which I wrote in issue 192 between life- and business-partners Konstantin Weiser and Alexandra Kunstler appears to continue, with Weiser taking the lead in both advocating and shepherding into bottle strikingly low-alcohol and unabashedly sweet wines while Kunstler remains especially focused on dry ones. 'All of our parcels had to be picked selectively this year,' notes Kunstler, 'even those where we harvested Kabinett, because if nothing else there was botrytis to remove first.' As is frequently the case at this address, some wines in the present collection were awkwardly marked by yeasty and fermentative aromas when I tasted them at the end of last summer. I have not had opportunity to revisit these, but they may well be more expressive after their first year in bottle." - 90 Pts David Schildknecht - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
