This is the sort of airy, elegant and hardly sweet seeming Spätlese which regrettably is a dying, if not dead, species. Light/medium bodied but beautifully harmonious with lime tinged white fruit, spice, petrol sprinkled minerals, mouth-watering acidity and slight RS all in perfect balance and aromas lingering long in the throat. Excellent.
Cepages Holiday Tasting: Champagne & Riesling (New York City): Drank at Cepages holiday tasting. Nose somewhat reticent, slight petrol there. A bit on the sweet side, short on acidity, & overall somewhat flaccid. Petrol and lychee predominant. Seemed much like a flabby gewurtz dessert-style wine. Not a favorite of mine, or the crowd as a whole.

(Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Spatlese) Lots of green apple and an almost sweet tart-like complexity and intensity. Great concentration and ripe acids all with a somewhat fat midpalate. Little petrol adds even more complexity. A great drink for now.
