My second bottle of this wine and it continues to befuddle me. It seems neither here nor there. A beautiful golden color and excellent viscosity. A fine nose ofbergomot, quince and citrus notes. The initial tast is slightly offputting with disjointed flavors and a hot finish. Obviously very ripe clean fruit but made with only moderate sweetness. Almost demi-sec in sweetness but too ponderous due to the alcohol rather that cloying sweetness. I think this would show better as an German auslese style with more RS. Beginning to gain mature riesling flavors and began to open up with a little aeration. I'm not sure with what food this pairs either. I doubt that this will improve with age.
Bugger, last bottle I had - should have checked here before consuming!
A big but graceful older riesling, with oodles of butteriness and slightly hazelnutty. The sweetness has integrated into a richer body, lacking a bit in acidity to keep it zinging through. Would have like to have left it a few more years, but such is life.
