Buntsandstein “Ida”, named lovingly after the former owner and caretaker of this small parcel planted around 50-60 years ago, with top clone material and farmed organic for many years. I have a sense there must be more clay here, because the wine just smells bigger, more textural – like it has more heft. This is really just outrageous; dripping with orange and tangerine oils – a splash of vanilla and really a beguiling lovely nose, wow: absolutely intoxicating. Chalky tannins, squared and dense, chewy even. Still very elegant and tense, but the most tapered of them—coiled at the moment, giving a sense of bounds of unlayering and density to unravel. The fruit here is skews on the cherry side with again lovely citrus oils that leave a certain freshness and minty coolness.
