Nose is tight. Gorgeous detailed fennel. Petrol, earthy and mineral. Other herbs. Apricot. Slowly unfurling. What a palate. So elegant. Super confectionary. Wow. Like cotton candy but also petrol and mineral. Mind boggling complexity. So juicy and precise. What energy. Amazing mid palate. Stunner.

Thornicher ritsch SPATLESE (Caps not needed).

Old school aged mosel Riesling. Some petrol on the nose. Green apple skin. Palate is green apples. But a hint of green apple jolly rancher a la willy Schaefer. Still beautifully vibrant. Complex. Wow.

I’m writing this on day 3. Needs a decant to hit peak Amazing.

Bought from fass selections.
