Editor’s Choice: “A touch of lemon balm adds a breezy freshness to the nose, while a pure, bright and precise notion of ripe lemon pervades and takes over the entire palate. On its fringes, delicious hints of chamomile and chervil appear alongside ripe red apple. This is a tantalizing charmer in spite of its absolute dryness and vivid acidity.”

“The nose is a little shy, just hinting at citrus freshness. The very dry palate brings all the freshness to the fore—this is lithe and vividly lemony. Exquisite tartness tingles deliciously on the tongue and ripples its vivid rays of shimmering bright light across the senses—what a picture of 2014. If you like it emollient and rounded this is not for you. This is for lovers of bright uncompromising purity and freshness. This has real verve, bags of it, all backed up with serious lemon fruit. Gorgeously refreshing now but it will be even better with time.”

“This takes a few moments to open up on the nose but the gloriously tart but ripe apple notion of Riesling then becomes enticing and irresistible. On the palate the flavors the apple flavor acquires the merest touch of honey while vivid lemon awakes all taste buds. This is intense and incisive but not heavy at all. The palate is dry and poised. The finish is ultraclean and gorgeously lip-smacking. Totally refreshing now but with great potential.”

“Dried lemon peel and honey create a very appealing nose. The palate displays generous fruit balanced by the disciplined structure provided by lively acidity. Glimpses of ripe pear and honeycomb show on the edges, while the medium-dry finish is immensely appetizing. Though it’s lovely now, it shows long-term potential, and should hold well through 2030.”

“There is something pleasantly bitter on the nose: Burnt sugar or bitter almond. The palate answers this with fluid, rippling sweetness expressed in ripe, juicy, refreshing pear fruit. The bitter notes remain and create an appetizing, tangy edge to this concentrated wine that is streamlined by balancing freshness despite the residual sugar. A lovely balancing act with a bracingly clean, medium dry finish and echoes of citrus zest.”
