Yeah, possibly. I am admittedly very sensitive to new oak in white wines--it doesn't take much for me to not like it. In this bottle, the oak was just a bit too one note. Perhaps some age would have helped it integrate a bit more.
Honestly, I'm trying to recall what was different about the S bottling. It's definitely dryer than their normal Weissburgunder bottling, but I can't recall if it was cellared differently--it very well could have been oaked differently.
Regardless, it was a fun bottle. And yeah, Doennhoff
Great, great producer.
