Pinot Bianco 2006 

97

This is really wonderful with dried apples, peaches and bitter lemon and cream and floral undertones. Full body. Layered and fulfilling. A wine aged 12 years in stainless steel vats before bottling in June 2018.

Terlaner I Grande Cuvée 2016

96

This is very intense with cooked-apple, white-peach, mineral and cream character. Full-bodied yet agile and fresh. Lovely creamy texture, too. Drink now.

Terlaner Cuvée 2018

93 

A subtle white with white pepper, thyme, citrus and quartz and other minerals. What this really trades in is minerality, whereby flinty and stoney aromas are conveyed in a linear streak of acidity. Medium-bodied and medium-long on the finish. Drink now.

Kreuth Chardonnay 2017

94 

This is a very serious white with kiwi and guava peel, introducing dried lemon rind and jasmine. Full-bodied and very oily, but trimmed into shape nicely by the direct acidity. Drink now.

Chardonnay 2018

91 

Fresh and fruity chardonnay with hints of cooked apples and stone. Medium body. Clean and bright finish. Drink now.

Gewürztraminer 2018

92 

Dense and layered with a waxy and almost dusty character to the smoke and dried-apple flavors. Full and dry. Flavorful. Fresh. Drink now.

Lunare 2017

93 

Dense and oily Gewurz with sliced dried apples, pineapple and smoke. Almond skin. Full body. Lots of flavor. Extremely rich. Drink now.
