Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July 2013
The nose offers a broad array of aromas, from ripe pear and grapefruit to white pepper, celery, tobacco and woodsmoke. An intense mango element saturates the sweet, creamy body, with finely integrated acidity providing definition and energy. The finish is dominated by salty minerals and lingers with charismatic persistence. For those who do not understand German, Stockkultur is a reference to the low bush-trained pruning technique widely used for vines prior to the last world war but now rare.
