Expert Reviews

95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September 2012

(14% alcohol; 60 g/l residual sugar and 10.8 g/l acidity):  Bright medium gold; looks like a very sweet wine.  Peach syrup, pineapple, spun sugar and botanical herbs on the nose, plus a whiff of roasted banana and some lemon-limey botrytis lift.  Supersweet and exotic in the mouth but with powerful acidity keeping the glyceral mid-palate passion fruit and spice flavors under wraps today.  Not as expressive as the Brand Vieilles Vignes in spite of its huge sweetness; in fact, this is almost painful today.  But the explosive, tactile, slowly unfurling finish suggests a very promising future for this deeply spicy riesling, which boasts almost SGN-like intensity.  (ST)
