Because of the vintage, this is atypically lush and plump for a dry Mosel Riesling, but it’s also wonderfully complex for the price. Scents of struck flint, honey and brine dominate the nose, while the flavors are of ripe peach and honey; it seems soft but ends with a salty-minerally tang. For near-term consumption.
Light almost to the point of etherealness, this is a delicate yet expressive rendering of one of the Saar’s greatest vineyards, boasting subtle stone shadings, damp mossy notes, green apple and lime. Clean and refreshing on the finish.
This wine starts out with a serious ethyl acetate (nail polish remover) problem but cleans up with aeration. Aromas here are sweet and a bit candyish—sour apple, spiced pear and watermelon flavors that lead to a pleasant, flowery palate. Quite off-dry, with a shortish finish of orange blossom. Drink now.
