90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010

(12.6% alcohol, 2.1 g/l r.s. and 9.6 acidity) Pale yellow-gold. Cool aromas of citrus zest, lemon ice, menthol, fresh herbs and crushed stone; classic austere riesling. Then dense and vibrant, with terrific energy and a vintage-typical saline element to the flavors of lemon, wild mint and herbs. The subtly persistent, palate-dusting finish offers captivating limestone lift. I love this bracing style of dry riesling.
