This lightweight auslese features admirable minerality in its crisp green apple and lime aromas and flavors. Frankly sweet flavors turn tart and malic, then thin out a little on the finish, but this is a solid commercial offering.
Aromatically subdued, with just a whiff of steely minerality, this easygoing Riesling boasts ripe peach and apricot flavors, accented by hints of spice and crushed stone. The finish is brisk, with vivid lemon-lime acidity.
It’s a bit chunky for a Mosel Riesling, but this wine also offers enough in the way of semisweet lime and pineapple flavors to compensate. There’s a hint of struck flint on the nose and a slightly custardy texture. Drink now.
The price might indicate a mass-produced wine, but only 4,000 cases of this bargain-priced spätlese were made. After a bit of burnt matchstick on the nose, melon, peach and chalk flavors give way to pink grapefruit on the finish.
