The vineyard character of Laurentiuslay dictates that the residual sugar of its wines be kept in check so as to emphasize its roundness, full body, and spicy minerality. This reflects Nik's philosophy of expertly expressing the best of each vineyard's special character. Although it possesses a rounded acidity and finesse unmistakably Mosel-like this relatively higher alcohol potential is reminiscent of some of Austria's top Rieslings. The wines are full-bodied, dense, and spicy with aromas of white pepper, clove, nutmeg, orange peel, blood orange, and quince.

Wine SpectatorRedolent of golden raisin, offering concentrated dried apricot, ripe pear and apple cobbler flavors, with bright accents of melon and roasted pineapple. The powerfully spicy finish is rich and pure, showing a surplus of honey cream notes. Drink now through 2042. 60 cases made.
