Yummmy. Deliciously balanced Riesling from Piesporter, a top Mosel vineyard. Rich yellow colour with apparent viscosity. Intoxicating nose of key lime, apricot, nectarine, honey and marigolds all bound by intense mineral notes of crushed rocks. Spatlese - off dry on the palate, but the tingly acidity keeps it crisp with a clean finish. Candied lemon, apricots, Bartlett pear and tinned Mandarin flavours linger in the mouth. Drinking exquisite now, but will hold 10 more yrs to develop more complex flavours and petrol notes. Enjoy with medium spicy seafood, mild curries or cheese. Tasted April '12
