The geologically unique vineyards of Prinz Salm

The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge. You, who so well know the nature of my soul, will not suppose, however, that I gave utterance to a threat. At length I would be avenged; this was a point definitively settled — but the very definitiveness with which it was resolved precluded the idea of risk.

I must not only punish but punish with impunity. A wrong is unredressed when retribution overtakes its redresser. It is equally unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong. It must be understood that neither by word nor deed had I given Fortunato cause to doubt my good will. I continued, as was my wont, to smile in his face, and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation.

Pale yellow. Vegetable scent of stewed apple, persimmon and tobacco. On the palate with the typical mineral spiciness of the red slate, red berry accents and sweet-sour fruit play. Predominantly dry taste. Ripe, integrated acidity, grippy mineral spiciness and very good length.

Pale yellow. Animating fragrance, primarily characterised by stone fruit and citrus notes, but also reminiscent of gooseberry and predominantly yellow, but also green apple. Slightly floral and vegetable on the nose with subtle hints of tobacco. Fine aromatic, with ripe, delicately vibrating, integrated acidity and good balance. Dry taste, again some tobacco, subtle mineral spiciness, long and persistent.

Greenish yellow. Spicy aroma of mainly yellow fruits and a hint of tobacco. On the tongue with distinct herbal spiciness, earthy notes and a pronounced phenolic.

Reflective yellow, appears concentrated and almost oily in the glass. Distinguished, restrained, but extremely complex bouquet that does not primarily come up with fruit aromas, but paints a picture in the taster's mind of a forest floor after a summer rain and mushrooms sprouting from the earth. Shows a very independent aroma and skilfully combines concentration and fineness with elegance. Creamy fruitiness, moderate acidity, phenolic spiciness. Very long and persistent.

Light yellow. Cool Riesling fruit with aromas of (Williams) pear, carambola and rhubarb, delicately floral and vanilla undertones. Exudes freshness and liveliness despite the hot and dry vintage. Mineral, distinctive and full of character. Vital acidity, excellent length.

Greenish yellow. Partly floral, partly herbal scent of stone fruit and dried herbs. Creamy, melting richness, powerful attack, seems a little monolithic. Well integrated, ripe acidity. Very good length and persistence. Long lingering herbal aromas.

Pale yellow. Opens on the nose with some citrus and distinct minerality, exotic-looking, herbal, with red berry accents and hints of elderberry and not yet fully ripe wild strawberry. Excellently balanced in the mouth. Vital but also ripe acidity, discreet fruit sweetness, herbal and, in the context of the vintage, with a certain phenolic quality that is well compensated here and even animating. Developed according to age. Spicy and herbal. Excellent length.

Light yellow. Nose marked by bright fruits, especially citrus and stone fruit, with floral hints reminiscent of white flowers. In the background, aromas typical of the green slate, carambola and rhubarb. On the tongue with juicy, at the same time fine Riesling fruit and elegant acidity. Not overly sweet, excellently balanced. Mineral notes. Very long and persistent.
