A great dry Saar Riesling from Grosse Lagen, or great sites! It's the loose brunches of perfectly ripe, small berries from up to 120-year-old vines in the steepest slate slopes, which give us this concentration, depth, and silky texture. The all-penetrating, almost salty minerality, generates in this valuable wine a tension between profound concentration and provocative freshness. Starting with a warm inner core, the wine develops in the glass a scent of pineapple, ripe red grapefruit, and hints of orange. This fragrance opens into a seductive, multifaceted Spiel, or interplay, which great wine have, along with a long finish.
