"Dry and very composed. A quite, subtle wine with a gentle soul. Lovely green-white citrus flavours and a leitmotif of herbs. Lay-lines of acidity drawn with a smudge-green pencil into the finish. Softly tenuto." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson / 16.5 points
This Riesling was produced from a small harvest of grapes grown on vines that are over 70 years old. Mineralic and delicate, 2020 is an exceptionally fine vintage - playful with great freshness, gripping, with very fine fruit flavours. The Riesling Alte Reben shows a perfect balance between fruit and spice. A white wine with an elegant structure and lively finish.
