ITEM 8463441 - Removed from a subterranean, temperature and humidity controlled residential cellar
A great spätlese that is really ripe, but still vibrant, elegant and subtle. Sensational interplay of all the components that make this a very classic... This has a personality all of its own (something floral that's unusual for this site).
...ripe honeydew melon with cassis, grapefruit, and hints of cress and lemon peel that subsequently lend incisive, piquant invigoration on a delicate, polished, infectiously juicy palate. Penetrating and sharply focused...the tinglingly, refreshingly citric yet soothing and cooling finish serves up a shimmering array of stony, smoky, alkaline and crystalline nuances.
...clear, intense and flinty on the nose, very precise but well concentrated... Round and piquant, with a stimulating fruit and salinity, this is a very well-defined, crystalline and straight Spätlese of great finesse and elegance.
A racy, tensile version, whose peach, apple and lime flavors are stretched tight along its axis. Delicate, vibrant and mouthwatering on the long finish.
Almonds on the (rather intense) nose. Extremely tense and tight. Marked acidity and juiciness.
