Peach and mineral on the nose. At first, the sweetness was dominant with only a bit of acidity. After being open for about 30 minutes, it came into balance quite nicely. Peach and apple upfront with good mineral qualities on the finish. Nice smoothness through the middle and the sweetness ended up being fully balanced by the acidity. Finish had good length and acidity, enough so that I think this wine should continue to improve over the next few years. Not as complex or as precise as some other spatleses’, but still showed quite well.
Light straw, bright. Ripe-ish aromas of orchard fruit, and brown spices. Lower acids than I might prefer, not very complex, but for the money, a delicious if not very serious Riesling. Good weight, clean, enjoyable; excellent with some traditional German sausages fresh off the grill (with plenty of hot/spicy mustard, of course). Drink before 2022
Popped and poured. This is a medium yellow wine. On the nose, I got freshly-cut apples, some slate, and some citrus. The mouth is moderately sweet, but a little flabby and loose. This was better served on the colder side. Overall, I thought this was fine, but nothing to get excited about. 88 points.
