Gunderloch, Riesling Auslese *** Rheinhessen 2001

Gunderloch 2001 #1

Imported by Rudi Weist and Cellars International, San Marcos CA.

This is AP#7.

Yellow-gold.  Tropically lavish and extravagantly dense for Feinherb (off-dry).  Narcissus over fennel with a granitic determinism underneath.  Fine mineralic transparency at the end, vigorous and torquey. ’04 comes off earthy by comparison, the ’01 still a ways from his majority.  Now – 2020+.
