Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines, New York NY.
Of forty-five year old vines from the Geisberg and Osterberg vineyards, facing south and south-east. Soil is an admixture of marl, limestone, sandstone and fossil-studded muschelkalk.
Lustrous green-gold. Flush with an entrancing yin-yang: the billowing sweetness that comes with maturity and salty with extract. Intimations runs to bouillon blanc, white currant confit, pouchong tea, peekytoe crab. A steely regard underneath the ringent ripeness, the finish lengthened by his granular minerality. A dry Riesling built to go the distance. Now – 2018+.
