They offer their favorite dry (and off-dry) wines as "best cask," and the actual wine can change from year to year. The estate "Goldatzel" also farms a vineyard named Goldatzel, a high-elevation site near the woods, which also receives less sunlight and is therefore among the last to be picked. I adore this vineyard, and have for years - to me it's the "GG" that ought to be and isn't. The wines are green and shady and crystalline, for lovers of finesse and detail; absorbing, aristocratic Rieslings.

VinousScents of sea breeze, oily crushed stone and bruised lime peel put me a bit in mind of Chablis. Along with these comes seductive hyacinth perfume as well as intriguing hints of flax and linseed. The correspondingly multi-faceted mid-palate is satiny and subtly glossy, leading to a finish superbly-sustained as well as transparent to floral, herbal and mineral nuances.
