Gunderloch, Nackenheim Rothenberg Riesling Auslese *** Rheinhessen 2004

Gunderloch 2004 #1

A three star Auslese with no botrytis, fermented off-dry.

This is AP#15.

Canary yellow.  Ripe and smoky, he highlights red-soil fragrance with a feral streak over fennelly fruit.  The class of the vineyard is transparent here: he allies broad-shouldered substance and sauvage intimations to first-rate detail.  The finish is both latticed and penetrating.  Will still improve.  Now – 2025.
