Schieferkopf-Riesling-Buehl-2012

Schieferkopf, Riesling Buehl, 2012

“Domaine Schieferkopf’s Riesling Buehl displays a remarkable, high-toned and pungent nose of lemon and tangerine oils; peppermint; musky, narcissus-like perfume; and a hint of primary yeastiness, for an effect that’s bracing and quite Muscat-like. Firm in feel, infectiously juicy, and finishing with zesty invigoration, vibrant interplay, and a focus and clarity especially admirable in terms of its vintage, this should provide some serious thrills through at least 2022. And yes, as with its 2010 counterpart, there does indeed seem to be a certain stony undertone one might choose to associate with wet slate; but above all, there is some of the dynamic one associates with such soils on the Mosel or the Nahe.”
