Greenish straw yellow. Fine, discreet Riesling nose with yellow fruity accents. Complex opening on the tongue, overall rather soft texture, probably also due to a biological acid reduction. Ripe and integrated acidity, dry taste, finely spicy, with herbal hints. Excellent length, finish lasting several minutes.

Bright greenish yellow, tending towards straw. Discreet ripeness on the nose with a pronounced peach aroma and hints of roasted coffee bean and green herbs. Juicy Riesling fruit, delicate sweetness at the start. As the wine lingers, the fruit recedes into the background, the wine presents itself drier and is increasingly dominated by minerality. Delicately vibrating, ripe acidity. Very long.

Bright green-yellow with pronounced church windows at the edge of the glass. As usual in the 2010 vintage, the nose gives the impression of an advanced development that does not correlate with the actual maturity. The bouquet shows a harmonious interplay of yellow-fruity and yellow-fleshy notes, slightly roasted coffee beans, fine spiciness and subtle aromas oscillating between tropical and red berry fruits. Olfactory perception is confirmed on the tongue. Juicy and, at the same time, creamy on the palate. The acidity is well integrated, perhaps even a little too polished. Aromas of honeydew sweeten the finish. Outstanding length. Has still reserves for further ripeness in the bottle. Until 2020, possibly beyond.

Lemon yellow with green reflections. Restrained nose with beginning tertiary maturity and hints of peach. On the tongue with a more pronounced ripening note, the fine phenolic component of which lends backbone to the crystal-clear and now opulent peach fruit. Thanks to vital acidity and residual sweetness, a juicy and animating fullness of fruit is created. Very good length.
