About

92

"As I noted last year,, this is a new bottling from Karthäuserhof to fill the gap in the quality hierarchy between the Alte Reben and the Grosses Gewächs (think of it as the premier cru in the dry Riesling lineup here) and the 2012 is very fine indeed and a notable step up from the Alte Reben bottling in this vintage. The very fine nose offers up scents of pink grapefruit, caraway seed, a beautifully complex base of slate, petrol and dried flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a rock solid core, crisp acidity and excellent focus and grip on the very long and classy finish. Fine juice. 2016-2035+."
