Screwcap. Dry. 2011 may not have the power of the 2010 yet it is still very much in the electric, mouth watering style that we have come to expect of this remarkable value Riesling. It's a pretty and pure vintage that has produced wonderfully fresh, sappy whites with superb fruit clarity. The grapes for this cuvée comes mainly from sandstone parcels which, in 2011, were cropped well below the regional average (approx. 60 hl/ha). This year there is a lovely fusion of lifted lime, talc, ripe apple, and honeysuckle aromatics leading to a textural yet zippy and mineral fresh palate. The length is admirable and decidedly snappy with a line of quicksilver freshness cutting through the lovely, bright and pure fruit. A softer, more fruit-driven wine than the previous vintage, it shows all the values we love about the Von Buhl Qba - ripe fruit balanced with a palate-cleansing freshness and concentrated, rocky, Pfalzean minerality. A bargain as always.
