2017 KASTANIENBUSCH Riesling GG
»In order to describe the herbal notes in the nose of this wine to you properly, I would need to spend the whole evening studying them! Rose hips and wild berries, plus a hint of passion fruit. Crystalline finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«

2017 "GANZ HORN" Riesling GG
»At once ripe and generous at the front, yet austere and radical at the finish, this is a super-straight and mineral wine that needs some time to give its best. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«

2017 IM SONNENSCHEIN Riesling GG
»This is so ripe, but so cool, reserved and delicate. The yellow-fruit aromas need some aeration to unfurl. Very long and complex finish, which has a darker side that the rather sunny aromas don't even hint at. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«

2017 MANDELBERG Weißer Burgunder GG
»This proves that pinot blanc really can give a great dry white wine. Crazy, exotic fruit in the nose, but not a jot too much. Then comes the enormously concentrated palate and a finish that literally takes your breath away. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«

»You could easily mistake this for a top FF. Very fine, mango nose, then a ripe and moderately rich palate that has great freshness and a long, very chalky finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«

2017 IM SONNENSCHEIN Weißer Burgunder GG
»Stunning, ripe, sliced-pear nose. In spite of the ripeness, the combination of concentration and elegance is fabulous. Very long, subtle, chalky finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«

2017 RIESLING vom Buntsandstein trocken
»Plenty of Thai basil and a touch of green chili give this racy and dramatic dry riesling a ton of character. A rather sleek body is married to great extract and a lovely vibrancy on the bone-dry palate, the finish harmonious and very refreshing. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«

2017 RIESLING vom Muschelkalk trocken
»A ripe and creamy wine that is bone dry with a great texture from the chalky character. On the nose there's a bergamot note that's far removed from the standard riesling aromas. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«

2017 WEISSER BURGUNDER vom Lößlehm trocken
»Concentrated and creamy, but still so fresh and vibrant, this is a very exciting pinot blanc. I love the delicate white-fruit and floral aromas. Long, silky yet lively finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«

2017 "R"  π No. ® trocken
»Crazy stuff that doesn't fit any of the familiar pigeon holes, this is lush and toasty on the front palate, but turns cool and fresh at the finish. From a field blend of all the pinot grapes. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified.«

2017 GRAUER BRUGUNDER vom Lößlehm trocken
»Plenty of orange blossom, as well as ripe melon, plus very lively acidity, making this an exceptional German pinot gris. Long, refreshing finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified.«

2017 WEISSER BURGUNDER trocken
»Plenty of white fruit and citrus with a touch of fresh green beans from the garden. In spite of all this character, this remains a rather light and lively wine.«

»Grapefruit and green beans on the nose. Sleek and racy with plenty of energy, then a very clean finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«

2017 MUSKATELLER trocken
»Very sleek and still rather closed. However, this has stunning concentration for such a light, 12 per cent alcohol white. The finish is of crystalline purity. From biodynamically grown grapes. Respekt certified. Drink or hold.«
