Andrew Jefford


Mid- to full gold in color. Earthy and engaging, with ripe orchard fruit and even a little guava. Lively and fresh, dry, balanced, harmonious, and finally vinous: a wine of sinew, energy, and poise, its ripe acidity beautifully covered by the fruit flavors and working very well in the dry idiom. Its origins lend it a little relative warmth and force, but it would still be marvelously versatile at table and remains delicate, fresh, and even attractively slight in the world context.

Bright straw yellow. Again, more classic Riesling flavors, like golden apples and white peaches. Very elegant and mineral on the palate, piquant and thrilling; still drying a little bit at the end, but there is concentration, a nice fruit core, and roundness as well. Racy acidity. Firmly structured, very clear and pure on the palate. Very promising, though shut down at the moment. No charm. Bone-dry. Very good potential.

Andreas Larsson


Floral and aromatic on the nose, with hints of orange zest, ginger, and stone fruit, but also with a clear notion of minerality. The palate is finely balanced and offers layers of fruit, a juicy acidity, a well-rounded texture, and a long, mineral aftertaste.
