About

93

There is the merest hint of chamomile lift on the nose, pulling all the other flavors heavenwards with it. There is apple as well as lemon zest. The palate is wonderfully pure and totally dry. Here and there more herbal inflections show and more mellow hints of baked apple. This is dry, taut and aromatic, but also clean-cut and precise. Lovely now but with definite aging potential. Drink now through 2030.

Product Description:

100% Riesling from 30 year old vines, sandy soil with granite. The Baur family cultivates this Grand Cru since 2008. The vines are on very steep slopes and enjoy south/southeast exposure, allowing the grapes to reach optimum ripeness. The grapes are hand-harvested, hand-sorted, then pressed in a pneumatic press. Slow fermentation with indigenous yeasts in temperature controlled (20°C) tanks. After, the wine matures on its lees for several months and is bottled in August. Nose of white flowers and grapefruit, rich palate with an intense minerality. 210 cases made.
