"From the driest and stoniest part of Feuerberg. They used to grow hay there, hence the name Haslen. Such an intense nose. Nectarines, late-harvest apples, honeysuckle and jasmine. Then just glorious. Floods the mouth with flavour, rounded and full-bodied yet with beautiful, elegant, cool lines. Like marble and diamond dust and cold cement dust and petrichor with a voluptuous roundness of almost tropical fruit. An 'and yet' wine - elements that seem contradictory and shouldn't fit together, and yet they do, in perfect polyphony. Long, mouth-watering, one more glass please. Wonderful. So incredibly long that I feel it tingling in my spine. Goosebumps wine."
