James Suckling Review
Rated 93
An impressive introduction to dry Saar riesling, which shows precisely the cool, wet-stone character we associate with these wines. Understated and very elegant with mint, parsley and dill overtones. Not so compact, but the finish is very tightly wound. So many subtle nuances at the end! Drink or hold.

Wine Tasting Notes
Very old Riesling vines ("Alte Reben"), ranging from 60 to 130 years, deliver a salty sea breeze, with nuances of white lilac and white tea. The taste is herbaceous, profound and precise, with the mouth-filling aromas of lime and white pepper that end in a mineral, almost stony finish. This linear beauty walks a taut line of citrus and herbal spice with razor sharp acidity.
