This is a tremendous effort in 2016, a classic classic expression of the more linear, cool, white peach fruited, implosive gray slate qualities, delivered with a power-meets-finesse-meets-charm sense of completeness. This will prove to be an outstanding and overachieving bottling that will both please the most experienced and newbie. What more can one possibly ask for?? Clemens agrees that this may be the finest Grauenschiefer that he has ever made….
“The 2016er Pündericher Trocken vom grauen Schiefer comes from the grey-slate sectors in the Pündericher Marienburg. This offers a beautifully complex nose of white peach, mirabelle, coconut and fine herbs. The wine proves gorgeously pure, refined and delicately creamy on the palate and leaves a smooth and nicely tickly feel in the long and elegant finish. This is a gorgeous wine with true “grand vin” character in the making. 2019-2026” 91 MFW
