Von Buhl 2012 PECHSTEIN Forst Riesling Grosses GewächsRegular price £55.00
A wine with aromas of white and yellow stone fruits, orange zest, lychee, grapefruit. Chamomile blossom and mint round come through elegantly on the palate followed by pink grapefruit, lemongrass and green tea. A beautifully complex and balanced wine with a long finish.
It is the black basalt, the mineral legacy of the Pechsteinkopf that gives the
wine growing here a completely unmistakeable touch. The aroma and flavour of the
Pechstein from the 2009 vintage is, as is often the case, squaring the sensory circle:
beginning with fruity, subtle, exotic, yellow aromas, superseded by a closed, dense
character with that typical mineral saltiness, which finds its perfection in a long,
youthful, fresh, lasting elegance.
