The similar personality of a harmonized balance between richness and explosive minerality is found in the ’14, with perhaps a bit more generosity of flesh adding charm. This one got a little *. (no, I don’t always give everything little *s, that’s just how freakin’ good these wines are!!)
“Straw-green. Mirabelle, apple, pear and crystallized ginger on the captivating nose. Then multilayered and dense on the palate, displaying concentrated, fine-grained lemon peel, nectarine, guava and lichee flavors. There is real depth and complexity here, not to mention impressive length. A portion of Dirler’s Kessler vines was planted in 1959; in fact, this vineyard has, on average, the oldest vines of any Dirler-Cadé property except for the Sylvaner in the Heisse Wanne plot, in the heart of the Kessler, which was planted in 1957.” 92 Ian D’Agata
