Winemaker's Notes

My wine of the vintage in this offering, and an astonishing wine; since 2004 this has had what I call the "1975 fragrance" (perhaps the most beloved of all recent Mosel vintages) as it does now again; there's also a brashness of pure apple; but my god, the palate! Explosive, shattering intensity of what's at core a tender thing, zen-tender, calm in confidence of its perfect firm strength; endlessly generous but without gushing or bellowing; a mentholated high-toned apple vein fills out the finish, which seems to spiral outward into eddies and whorls of complexity.

Light in weight, but not in flavor, this 2007 Riesling offers Key lime pie, Golden Delicious apple and floral notes on a see-through frame. Offers beautiful balance and persistence, lingering gracefully on the finish. Drink now through 2032. – Wine Spectator
