2012 Ökonomierat Rebholz Ganz Horn Riesling Grosses Gewächs
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Sensuous aromas of white peach, hazelnut, basil and lemon oils. The bright, shimmering guava fruit and salty minerality remain fresh and lively for minutes on the palate. Clearly focused and impressively long on the finish, this seductive Riesling rates among the great successes of the vintage.
This offers a lively mix of light, smoky accents to the concentrated and integrated apple and green peach flavors. Lemon curd and currant notes fill the well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2018. 200 cases made.
A fresh citrus fruit aroma finds expression in a mouthwatering flavour of grapefruit and mandarin, partnered by a lip-smacking salty minerality. On the mid palate we experience a great harmony of body, fruit and acidity, and on a long finish the Ganz Horn excels with a zesty sparkle of flavours. Lively, complex and elegant, one of the greats of 2012. (MS) 18.5 points.
