About

91

"High-toned suggestions of mint, basil, and other herbal essences in distilled form mingle and rise from the glass of Diel’s 2010 Dorsheimer Goldloch Riesling Grosses Gewachs, then saturate a satin-textured palate, with fruit pit and toasted nut piquancy as well as palpable chalkiness adding interest, while a juicy fundament of peach and citrus persists through a refreshingly persistent, animatedly interactive, and coolingly cleansing finish. This offers admirably and unusually generous early appeal for a Riesling of its genre and I suspect it will sustain interest – not to mention delight – over the better part of a decade."

91 Joel Payne - Vinous Media

"Bright aromas of white peach, mint and pine nuts. A crisp pear flavor paired with subtle saltiness on the palate gives this wine a vibrant character. Pure and clean, with a delicate spiciness lingering on the finish."

Product Description:

"For whatever reason (and after being admonished repeatedly by Armin for visiting so early, before the GGs were ready) these GGs were ready, at least to taste with any half-decent sense of where they’d go. As usual Goldloch is the fruit-bomb of the trio, with such tactile sorrel and wintergreeny density you need a power-drill to push your way through. Dramatic, clearly great and massively endowed, the best I’ve yet tasted, even at this embryonic stage." -Importer
