Tasting Notes

This would be the “GG” if Schneider were VDP which IMO would be FUBAR. A 60-40 blend of two lots gives a wine with a lot of low notes from the cask and zingy top notes from a sponti in steel; it begins to knit itself into a statement; adamant, big feet and a strong tread, along with a gravelly exotic note (reminded me of Alsace’s Grand Cru Schoenenberg) plus notes of iris and hyacinth with air. Potentially a complete, even profound Grand Cru Riesling. — Terry Theise
