Lemon yellow with emerald hints. Refined and contrapuntal on the nose: a classic red-soil fragrance (yellow orchard and citrus fruit, maple, cinnamon) set against a diesel-streaked backdrop. A timeless buoyancy on the palate, texturally lush yet explicit: yellow peach, nectarine, touch of framboise. Structured; incisive acidity and a steel anvil of minerality at the end. An impactful ’05 Spätlese Rheinhessen: one of the best ’05 rieslings at any prädikat level we have had in some time. Now – 2025.
