A very crystalline golden color in the class, shockingly pale actually for a 20 year-old wine. The nose was slightly muted but showed off the classic notes of citrus, peach and mango with a hint of sweetness. The acidity on the palate began extremely soft but built in time in the glass. The spatlese sweetness was still in good force with flavors of juicy mango and nice citrus notes with just a kiss of stone. This is a delicious wine, especially for the price, but I would bet on it having too many years left. — 11 days ago
Золотой цвет, энергичный стойкий перляж. Мёд, цветы, спелые желтые фрукты и цитрусы, тонкая бензольность. Насыщенный, спелый аромат. Среднетелое во вкусе груша, красный апельсин, мёд, латекс. Высокая кислотность, долгое солоноватое послевкусие. Очень хорошо. 17/20 — 12 days ago
Crisp, bright, fruit-forward nose with notes of a sweet yellow peaches and a touch of citrus. Lush and sweet but wonderfully balanced on the palate. Sweet, juicy flavors of lemon citrus and peach lead to bright, pure acidity and crisp minerality. The finish is long a juicy with a drying finish and forever-lasting acidity. Wonderful with an incredibly long life ahead of it. — 14 days ago
So good. So damn good. So cheap. So damn cheap. Gorgeous nose of slate, lime zest, citrus pith and a foreboding sense of power. Palate is generous and elegant with so much fruit for a Spatlese Trocken yet with a firm mineral backbone and lipsmacking acidity. Terrific wine and value. Great complexity and mouthfeel and long tangy mineral finish. — 8 days ago
Liquid golden in colour. Nose showes candlewax, slate, petrol and thick citrussy notes, and some stinky stuff that blows off after some aeration.
On the palate there's candied citrus, maybe even a distant hint of marmelade, white pepper, rockdust and seaspray.
If you still have any, I'd suggest to pull the cork sooner rather than later, as I think this won't get better and even might be going downhill soon.
