A nose slightly reminiscent of fino but countered with a blast of freshness on the palate. Elderflower, chamomile, super energetic without a drop of petrol.

One of my favorites from Theise tasting on Monday. A "barrel sample" from '97. Funky yellow chalk & stone fruit.

So weird. Like liquid smoke, and poached asian pear. Like elderflower liqueur bombed in diesel. How the hell is this delicious? I don't know, but it was. I can't imagine it progressing in complexity, due to it's very nature, but I was definitely intrigued. It's like a viewing of Koyaanisqatsi. I'm not quite sure why I like it, but I did. And now I'm changed, but cannot say why. Quite confusing, but obviously unique. This is a wine drinking experience that has to be had to understand. Just wow...

Pushing boundaries of what is. Distinctive yet true to form, utterly delicious over hours, shapeshifter and evolving with air in a burgundy glass. Full of movement, starting stingy and quiet to a beautifully pitched wonder, from delicate to powerful, from profusely wide back to elegantly linear then into a long plateau of regal and astounding for hours. All the time full of extract and weight yet so light and nimble, mineral and kind of poofy in a lemon verbena cotton ball way, wrapped in wet stone, dripping with oily strength. Glad to see a few ounces left today and another tucked away to forget about. One of the best Austrian wines I yet had.

Appeals much younger than a 97. Fresh herbal notes, acacia, pear and this typical "biodynamic" component of apple peel but in a super withdrawn sense. Fine and elegant on the palate. Lots of potential left.
