Tasting Notes

You expect this to be superb, and it is. From the lower part of a steeply terraced hillside, the soils run to amphibolite, marble, gravel and loam over a bedrock of mica-schist. We tasted a cask-sample which of course was euphorically expressive; it did seem basically richer than the wines around it, but not really more “intense.” (The Alte Reben was the most intense wine in the group.) This wine is queenly, blossomy, like an ambience of 500 flowering trees yet anchored to a flowing solidity. – Terry Theise
