2019 Volkach Karthäuser Weißburgunder Grosses Gewächs trocken, Franconia/Franken, Germany

Firm, deep, tart and rather cool, clearly vegetal and slightly nutty, very bright, restrained yellow-fruity aroma with floral nuances, herbs and minerality. Taut, tart, fine-juicy, again rather cool fruit, lively acidity and grip of ripe, fine-sandy tannin, still yeasty hints, a little smoke and nutty-woody traces, hints of pepper and allspice, lasting, with some power, but largely fat-free, also quite dry, good depth, distinct minerality, still rather young, very good, firm, spicy, mineral and tart-juicy finish with delicately creamy and slight warmth, but also draught.

Editor note: Firm and concentrated, smoky, nutty and slightly vegetal aroma of ripe yellow fruits with a touch of pepper, caraway and fennel as well as mineral notes.

Needs time.
