Tasting note from from 13.08.2021, Copyright Marian Henß


Bright straw yellow, green reflections


At the beginning, it does not even begin to betray its grape variety or origin in the glass. Peach, apricot and mirabelle plum jostle for dominance in the glass. The whole is underpinned with delicately smoky and stony accents. The association with flint is obvious. Caramelised quince and a little bread dough complement this successfully. Quite discreetly, violet floral nuances such as lavender can be detected. And from the herb garden, marjoram and lemon thyme provide a slight spiciness. Finally, it is somewhat reminiscent of acacia blossom and marzipan.


On the palate, very open and full on the fruit side. The aromas of the nose reappear with similar intensity. The yellow aromas dominate the picture. However, the green aromas repeatedly set successful accents in the aftertaste. It lives from a stony and cool component underneath the fruitiness. The acidity is totally pleasant and integrated in perfect balance. Slowly, it also lines the mouth with a fine minerality. With all the fine bitter notes and the smoky hints, it delivers a gripping finish. This is an animating, varied and extremely successful wine.
