Im Bouquet mineralisch, Apfel und feine Kräuter. Im Geschmack fein strukturiert mit einer zarten und feinen Fruchtsüße. Den würzigen Noten folgen Apfel, Karamell, Zitronen und Mandarine. Ein erfrischender und lebendiger Riesling mit Eleganz, Balance und intensivem Finish.
Ripely aromatic, juicy, tart-edged apple and purple plum are strikingly and darkly tinged with what I can at best, if very imperfectly, describe as an ore-like as well as stony and subtly smoky sense of mineral matter. There is a palpable sense of extract richness on display here that I missed in the corresponding Scharzhofberger, as well as an enhanced impression of body reflecting a couple of degrees higher must weight (barely lower, in fact, than that at which Braune Kupp Spätlese was picked a week earlier). This Riesling’s layering of fruit and mineral is reflected in a long, resonant finish to which piquant suggestions of plum pit and toasted almond add further allure.
