Freundstuck Grosses Gewachs, Von Buhl 2015
NB vintage. Perfumed fragrance of exotic fruit with mandarin and orange as the main contenders. Quite sweet on the tip of the tongue, creamy, but also showing plenty of substance and broad structure with a little wood spice more than hinting at vinification in new(ish) oak.

If you like Premier and Grand Cru white Burgundies then you'll love this untypical dry riesling for its rich texture, power and complexity. Who knows how well this will age, so drink soon. Aged for two years in large oak on the full lees.

With a bright lemon-gold colour in the glass, this is expressive and spicy on the nose, with notes of pink peppercorn, lemon curd, and poached pear. The palate has excellent viscosity and texture, with the extra lees ageing adding weight and intensity of savoury spices. The bright acidity cuts through this texture and tightens the fruit profile from richer peach to cooler lime and lemon. The finish is precise, long, and complex, with a myriad of sweet and savoury spices that you might more closely associate with Pinot Gris or Gewurztraminer, were it not for the refreshing acid balance.
