Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , September 2012

Bright straw green.  Delicate, enticing aromas of dried apple, hazelnut and herbs.  Then surprisingly large-scaled and savory on the palate, conveying a strong impression of dry extract.  Ripe acidity lifts the apricot and menthol flavors.  Boxler told me he produced 30% less sylvaner than usual in 2010 due to flowering problems.  Very serious, classically dry sylvaner with only 3 g/l of residual sugar--yet another example of a sylvaner with uncanny depth and power due to the low yields and the even thicker-than-usual skins.  And wildly better than the 2011:  try it with oysters.
