Still the same straw color. Peach and honey notes. Quite on the sweet end of Spatlese. Bright acidity. Long finish. Paired with lamb curry, paneer. Stood up to the spice easily. Suffered in comparison with the same vineyard's 2001 Hochgewächs. [Note: this wine coming into its own three hours later, as I savor the last glass after clearing up after the tasting dinner. So stay tuned as this one ages.]
Like a faint looking apple juice in colour. Lovely concentrated smell of peaches, pears, and spicy green apples accompanied by the funky minerality of the wine. Sour green apples, some peaches, and a slight hint of honey on the palate. A touch too sweet me thinks. Light bodied with a pretty good finish. This is my first German riesling, and will be buying more so I may expand my palate.
