Tasting Notes

Produced from organic grapes, this is bright, crisp and wonderfully floral. The enticing perfume is dominated by apricot and baked apple notes, but a lovely floral aromatic is certainly present. Bright, dense and juicy on the palate, there is a wonderful purity to the white stone fruit and ripe tropical flavours. Lutzeltal is a very gravelly site, with vines around 85 years old. It is known to create extremely refined Sylvaners and the depth and complexity on offer here suggest this is another fine example.

Reviews & Scores

Luminous straw-yellow. White flowers, chamomile and stone fruit on the perfumed nose. Clean and fresh on entry, then more glyceral, showing sneaky concentration and size to the quince and white stone fruit flavors. This lovely wine is both rich and round and doesn’t quite taste completely dry, but in fact it has only 5 g/L residual sugar with 5.7 total acidity, and the latter masks the sugar’s presence very effectively. The finish is bright, long and creamy. Bursin is a recognized master of the Sylvaner variety; in her hands, it gives wines that are better than many Rieslings and Pinot Gris from other producers.

TASTING NOTES

Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. This wine particularly stands out for its great aromatic intensity, with marked hints of stone fruit (peaches) and white fruit (ripe apples and quinces) against a citrus background of lemon tree leaves. Big, flavoursome and fresh in the mouth, with a well-integrated acidity. Fruity and particularly persistent finish.
