This was my favorite of the lineup in 2010 and it's in close competition for that title in 2011 again. We're in feinherb territory here (just off-dry), and we tasted parcels in the cellar from barrel and stainless steel tank. Both were simply amazing, with the barrel showing a slightly silkier texture. While Ellergrub is softer than the dry wines and doesn't display the herbaceous streak found in Batterieberg, it more than makes up for this with its elegance, balance, feeling of weightlessness and overall sense of purity. I wouldn't be surprised if Ellergrub quickly becomes the cult favorite the more that people get to know these wines. 1.4 hectare, blue slate. -jfr
