    Nice concept, nice experiment. And that's it for me too: an experiment. It's so unusual that I had to sort my senses in between. In any case, the bottling is for the curious and friends of great minerality.

      It's summer. It's really hot. And then you tip a bottle of Riesling over warm pebbles or slate. In addition, virulent fruit and herbal notes. Butter biscuits are ready for dipping.

      That's pretty wild! There is yeast and malt, almost a scoop of beer schnapps. But also cooked beef and an earthy note. And again and again in between Riesling with overflowing minerality and fruit. Very unusual and demanding.

      A fortified Riesling, the alcohol is slightly narcotic. Sour fruit, endless minerality again and finally there is sourdough just before it goes into the oven.

    It has medium viscosity and its bouquet is moderately intense. I have flavors of vanilla, shortbread, herbs and acid. Moderately complex. A good balance between sweetness and dryness in terms of taste. The alcohol is very well integrated and it has a medium body.

    Unfortunately more wine than whisky, unfortunately this bottling did not meet my taste at all :(
