Würzburger Stein Trockenbeerenauslese Riesling 1971

The vintage 1971 in Germany speaks for itself--a true legend and amongst the very finest of the 20th century! Regardless of grape varietal, magical wines of perfect balance were produced throughout the major regions and they are still incredibly vibrant at nearly 44 years of age. This stellar #Sylvaner #TBA from perhaps #Würzburg's top site, Stein, was mind-boggling--rich, very concentrated and intense with a chocolate/caramel impression and a seemingly endless finish that resonated well after one swallowed it. Another astoundingly youthful bottle from the legendary #LudwigBalz collection--and half a bottle to boot! — 5 years ago
