This is a Grüner sourced from various barrels throughout the cellar: Grüners from harvests 2002 to 2010 and intentionally left untopped. All of these wines were in barrel until 2016 when the blend was composed in a stainless steel tank and left there until being bottled in the fall of 2022. At 11.5% this is the lightest of the wines and like the 2012 it has a certain seamless feel, an integration that only comes with age. This is delicately oxidative, with seabreeze and marine notes, salty with lots of dried herbs and complex fruit, bruised apple and plenty of minerals. This is superb, a Grüner with delineation and finesse and still tons of lift.
