Prager Riesling 1999 #3

A burnished canary yellow.  Fragrant, steely, detailed nose: smoky, floral yellow orchard fruit and pithy citrus; lily of the valley, chamomile, sassafras root, wet stone.  First rate aromatic detail here.  Taut, chiseled and brothy on the palate, medium-full: white peach, papaya, passion fruit, blossom honey, pea.  Finishes very long and saline.  Superior acidity and grip.  This has great posture.  Sinewy athletic and so very bright, almost as it were internally lit.  Trocken is not our preferred style and out belief is they are best consumed in their youth but this is impressive and ageworthy.  A fine bottle.  Now – 2020.
