Terry Theise and Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY.
Five years on.
From old-vines in the sirloin parcel ‘Kackert’ within the Sonnenuhr.
This is AP#19.
Emerald. The Gretsch guitar of Riesling, where old school is the new school and the wine has it all: amplitude, texture, relief, and counterpoint. Savory spice and slate articulate the nose, the orange-shaded fruit is pristine and crunchy and the acidity acts like a rudder. Smart stuff indeed. Now – 2027+.
