A rather closed bouquet, but on the palate there's great depth and concentration. Hints of apricot, grapefruit and dried herbs. A long, expansive and complex finish. Better from 2018, and then for many years to come.

Low-toned and with earthy richness of artichoke and roasted rutabaga that dramatically distinguishes it from the corresponding Kreutles, this also offers an intriguing, mouthwatering combination of meaty, alkaline, herbal and seaweedy elements reminiscent of mussels steamed with fennel. The feel is glossy, the finish impressively persistent as well as mouthwateringly salt-tinged, and the overall impression substantial, yet not at all heavy, let alone alcoholically freighted. This really grows in the glass.
