A fascinating nose mingles sea breeze, intimations of wet stone, and smoky struck flint with high-toned nut extracts, ripe nectarine and mango. The lusciously fruited, creamy, almost weightless palate leads into a sensationally sustained, at once soothing and stimulating finish that left my salivary glands palpitating and that, for all of its sheer richness, not to mention high residual sugar, displays a fascinating array of stony, smoky and saline mineral nuances.

Still very youthfull with plenty of ripe stonefruits. It is balanced wine but I could have used a tad more backbone from acidity.

Riesling at his very best. Although I love this opulence of Reinhesseners, I must admit that Fritz Haag is a king at his game. Focused and mineral, this wine should be ready in a decade.
