"Shy on the nose (where it only hints at more than exhibits fresh fruity scents of grapefruit, tangerine and a touch of mango as well as mint) this Spätlese proves surprisingly open on the palate as smooth and ripe flavors of juicy fruits play havoc with one’s senses. The finish has great intensity and presence with more fresh ripe fruits. This is a superb Spätlese in the making. 2025-2040" (FWR)

Winery Notes:
Cox orange apples lead into a leaping euphoric yawp of fruit but again all stretched and tensile, slate sprinkled like powdered sugar over the almost nervy fruit; a zippy complex Mosel Riesling. -Terry Theise
