From 68-year-old vines on a steep granite hillside in Turckheim, this south-facing parcel created a dry and austere, blunt young riesling in the heat of 2018. It’s nutty and yeasty, yet it finishes clean.

A giant of minerality with enormous structure, this also delights you with the stunningly ripe apricot and pineapple fruit that’s wrapped around its dense core.

A rich, medium-bodied white, with an aromatic petrol overtone and a frame of zesty acidity enlivening the creamy flavors of baked papaya, pink grapefruit granita, honeycomb and gingersnap biscuit. Clean-cut on the saline-laced finish.

Although only just beginning to open up, this is already a breathtakingly vibrant dry white that marries perfectly ripe, fresh-pineapple character with enormous minerality dominating the stunningly long and precise finish. In spite of all this intensity, the wine has an almost weightless feel to it. Did somebody say langoustines? From biodynamically grown grapes.

The 2018 Riesling Brand is such a gorgeous wine. In this range, it is distinguished by an interplay of textural richness and energy that is just compelling. All the elements are so alive in the Brand. Citrus, floral and mineral overtones form the strands of the wine’s fabric. It’s the kind of wine that gets better and better with time in the glass. Dry, bracing notes inform the beautifully chiseled finish.
