Wine Advocate 93 points - The nose of Bodenstein?s 2012 Riesling Smaragd Wachstum Toni Bodenstein is utterly fascinating, though some may find it off-putting in its suggestion of butchered animal innards, musk, peat, as well as white peach and diverse citrus. The nearest analogy I can think of is to certain Jurancon. Salty and meaty savor on a polished palate runs all the way through a mouthwatering and mysteriously nuanced finish. This genetically-diverse planting in the upper reaches above Weissenkirchen ? about which I have written more in several reports ? is singular in its location, and here is an instantiation that displays correspondingly unique and unusual scents and flavors. There have been many instances amid these vines previous 15 dedicated bottlings when you had to shake your head in disbelief that not only father-in-law Franz Prager but a great many other experienced vintners told Toni Bodenstein that Riesling would be lucky to ripen in this nose-bleed site more than one year in ten. On this 2012 occasion, though, it can at least be said that the Wachstum is Bodenstein?s one Riesling to have finished closer to 13% than to 13.5% alcohol! (Apr 2014)
