    From the best fruit of their Sommerberg Grand Cru vineyard. On first look it seems simple and mute but with time open, or preferably time in the cellar, you’ll see it blossom and change into one of the most glorious Rieslings you’ll ever try. Leave it for 10 years or longer.

    The 2017 Riesling Grand Cru Brand opens intensely fruity and floral on the nose, with a very delicate granite note that comes along as a kind of perfume. Silky, round and charming on the palate this is a lush, salty, well-structured and tannic Brand with lingering salinity. Bottled in August 2018 and tasted in October 2018, so it is still very young and with potential to improve and gain finesse.

    Bright green-tinged straw-yellow. Explosively spicy, deep nose of apple, pear and ripe citrus fruit. Then suave, dense and precise, presenting rich, ripe flavors of apple, pear and stone fruits, complicated by balsamic herbs and quince jam. Finishes long and juicy with noteworthy size and flesh. One of the biggest Brand Rieslings I have ever tasted from Boxler; so ripe and showy it is almost un-Boxler-like. The little bit of Kirchberg he added here gives power and greater backbone (the grapes from Kirchthal and Steinglitz sections of the Brand also all ended up in this wine).
