Willi Schaefer Spatlese #3Willi Schaefer Spatlese 1999

Pale yellow, tinged green.  Stylish, pure nose: lime, peach pit, blackcurrant leaf, caroway, September corn.  Medium full on the palate, vivacious and minerally: mealy pear, red berry, apricot, apple skin.  Nice saline character here to go with the knapped flint cut.  Love the definition and vigor here: its lift and intensity is communicated more by impression than weight.  A fine bottle and nicely done in a less than stellar year.  Now – 2020.Willi Schaefer Spatlese #2Willi Schaefer Spatlese 1999 #4
