Editor note: Translate to English Kühle, deutlich vegetabile Nase mit pfeffrigen Noten, etwas Mineralik und verhaltenen gelbfruchtigen Aromen. Kräftig und schmelzig im Mund, reife Frucht mit kräuterig-pflanzlichen, etwas hefigen und wieder auch pfeffrigen Aromen, lebendige Säure, leichte Wärme, viel Schliff und sehr gute Nachhaltigkeit, sehr gute Substanz, hat Griff, mineralische Töne, sehr guter Abgang.

Editor note: Cool, fairly complex nose, herbaceous and grassy as well as prominent mineral notes, fairly green citrus fruit, elderberry flowers, bell peppers. Elegant, juicy, polished, off-dry fruit on the palate, extremely elegant acidity, herbaceous notes, hint of sugar candy, mineral notes in the background, quite persistent and has some depth, fairly creamy, still very young, reined-in power, very well balanced, very good finish.
