92 Vinous - Scents of white peach and papaya project a riper impression than on the nose of the corresponding Grosses Gewächs, though that might be a function not just of the state of the fruit from which it was vinified but also of residual sugar, small differences in which can have a pervasive influence. But lest talk of sugar's efficacy be misunderstood, let me hasten to note that the actual sense of sweetness here is extremely discreet. Fresh lime injects bright, animating juiciness into the silken-textured palate, serving as a delightful foil to the riper fruit elements. Like the corresponding village-level feinherb, this Diabas displays lovely floral notes - another feature that might owe something to the presence of residual sugar. The long finish incorporates a mouthwatering lick of salinity, although, for now at least, not quite the complex and savory mineral allure possessed by this year's Grosses Gewächs.
