Hot year?

@Timothy Eustis Variable, per Decanter "2003 was a unique vintage in Germany. Its extremes of heat and drought were unmatched in living memory. Some compared it with 1959 but it was more extreme than that, and the only close comparison was 1540! Because of the unprecedented ripeness and sugar levels attained by the grapes, 2003 was hailed as a truly great year."

Back label has the Selbachs so this is post-Merk release. Just starting some petrol, this is scary fresh for its age. Wow. — 2 months ago

Kinheimer Rosenberg Spätlese Riesling 2012

Vintage 2012 | Very vivid and true to type Mosel Riesling, that seems so young. Must have eternal life? Slate mineral smell. High acidity, though I expected more sweet tones (geïnterviewd). — a month ago
