This is yet another remarkable and singular wine (there is so much of that in this lineup, I don’t mean to beat it to death, but that is how f’in amazing these are….) that was an unintentional but fortunate happening. One cask of his Piestporter Goldtropfchen from 2020 took an extra long time to finish its fermentation. Rather than mess with it to force the issue, he just let it be. Whereas typically the dry wines are bottled by the summer following the prior year’s harvest, this one went some 15 months+ before bottling. The result is a wine whose sense of finesse and crystalline pinpoint precision is breathtakingly beautiful. The texture is like gossamer silk, with all things fruit/floral/mineral woven together with an intensity and sense of weightlessness that is bordering on magical……a little * awarded here.
