Sick nose. Genius. Spacious and wide open. Pink grapefruit, floral, herbal, fruit jelly, apricot, vineyard peach, vulcanized rubber, just insane. Palate is genius. Floral and elegant. Juicy and so so long. A bit more closed than the Marbach and Domberg. But has amazing clarity, energy and finesse. Sappy and structured. Long. Salty, sweet, saline and insanely complex. Has 30 years of life ahead of it.

Our Fass white for the T-day dinner. I don’t drink much Spatlese these days, preferring Troken wines. But this one is a winner.

@delectable Felsenberg riesling SPATLESE There is an auslese as well.

Nose is initially lychee. Then turns clean tropical. Palate is amazing. Clean tropical with great minerality. So fresh. Crunchy. Much less heavy than most Nahe dessert wines. Or even most mosel ones other than say muellen. Almost the freshness of a Feinberg crossed with the density of a spatlese. Very different. Having with 7 year old red cow Parmesan. Geek balling. ;-).
