Tasting Notes

Many observers find this tied for top-site in Deidesheim (with Hohenmorgen, which only has two owners) as these things are debated. In this case it isn’t the strongest among the Deidesheim ”GGs” but it’s definitely the most interesting, many-faceted, graceful and long. It’s really gingery and wild-plummy, seductive and exotic, soursop and mint and wild herbs; it winks toward Sauvignon Blanc in fact— as if you hadn’t rinsed your glass—until the classic wisteria finish of pure Riesling. So piquant and stylish. It’s the moist delightful among the range. — Terry Theise
