This year’s Rausch GG is simply a glorious glass of pure class. It takes on a additional level of charm in its harmonized fruit meets acidity/dry extract vs that of the Alte Reben. True to the Rausch and the house style, this is all about haunting delicacy and weightless filigree mineral intensity. Just 2 fuders made. BRAVO!!!!
“The 2015 Rausch Grosses Gewächs from the Zillikens is a dynamite young wine and destined to be one of the finest vintages of GG yet produced from this superb estate. The bouquet offers up a youthfully complex constellation of tart orange, grapefruit, wild yeasts, a beautifully complex base of slate minerality, the vintage’s signature botanicals and a topnote of lime peel. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish, pure and absolutely seamless, with a fine core, excellent focus and nascent complexity, ripe acids and perfect balance on the very long, still quite primary finish. A beautiful GG in the making. 2023-2060. 95+.” John Gilman
