Tasting recently after bottling (august 2013):

  • Color: Light to medium yellow.
  • Smell: Same Riesling character as Elephant tap but more elegant, fluffy and vivid. Grass, but also flower and liquorice, dynamic and minerally.
  • Taste: More structure than above, style and finesse. The richness and fatness is counterbalanced by smooth acidity. Long and fresh in the aftertaste, without noticeable sweetness from residual sugar.
  • Judgment: To drink by itself or to better food. Will develop a lot in a couple of years. Consume at 13 oC.

    Awards

    2014 Decanter silver medal

    Decater tasting protocol:
    Fine perfume of grapefruit, papaya and stony minerality with attractive floral notes. The aromas are subtle and well-integrated. Full-bodied, with hints of apple and minerals. Clean, refined structure with a lingering citrus finish.
