Smells like golden apple, flowers, clean ocean brine, and some mild petrol. Fuller fruit on the palate, juicy apple and peach, with plenty of acidity that lingers in a fairly long, dry, slightly bitter mineral finish. Good stuff!
Dry German Riesling (German Wine Society - Washington, DC): Aromas of peach, lime, orange blossom and yellow apple, with time faint notes of herbs and spices. Lush apple and pear fruit on the palate with superb acid. Hints of oil and beeswax show the age. This wine is only slightly sweet, but the mineral and acid make it taste bone dry. If I had other bottles, I'd be wary of aging them for more than a year or so. That said, I really liked this, as I do all Heymann-Löwenstein wines.
Noten von reifem Apfel gepaart mit gelbem Steinobst, dazu Wiesenkamille und Kräuter; am Gaumen Melange aus Ananas/tropischer Frucht und Kamille, guter Schmelz mit herbem/bitterem Unterton und langem Abgang
Was really bummed when I opened this yesterday because I think it was slightly corked. Underneath the cork taint, I could tell this wine rocked with lush stone fruit, minerality and racy acidity. Very spicy and mineral driven on the palate but there was just something off and the nose indicated TCA. Damn.
